Brayton/Clevenger has eight floors for students and floors are designated for male or female residents. Students share a main lobby and have access to a flat-screen television, pool table, and other hall activities. There is also a computer lab, laundry room on each floor, fitness room, and study lounges. Brayton/Clevenger is home to the Theatre and Dance Living-Learning Community and Design Living-Learning Community.

All student rooms in Brayton/Clevenger are traditional rectangular double rooms. Furniture in this hall is not stackable or bunkable, so students may bring or rent lofts. Included in each room are beds, dressers, desks with chairs, and closet space. One wired Ethernet outlet is available in student rooms, and wireless Internet service is available throughout the building. A phone jack also is in each room.

At the ground-floor level of LaFollette Complex, where Brayton/Clevenger is located, is the LaFollette Square dining unit. The building is also near The Atrium and Noyer Centre dining locations. 


Brayton/Clevenger was named for two people who were involved with Ball State during its early history: Margaret Brayton and Gola Clevenger.

Brayton was an assistant professor of elementary education at Ball State. She taught kindergarten and first grade students at Burris School for 30 years, long enough to have the children of former students in her classes.

Clevenger retired as the director of placement and also was the admissions director from 1926 to 1956. He loved gardening, fishing, traveling, and working in his orchard.
