Residents in Hastings-Simmons are located in the beautiful North Campus community, overlooking Shattuck Lawn.

Originally named for Olivia Hastings, an early leader in the movement to establish a state supported college for women. This building was then rededicated in October, 1994 as Hastings-Simmons Hall in honor of Miriam Q. Simmons, MUW alumna who served as a member of the Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning and a member of the Mississippi House of Representatives.
