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

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


Mysch/Hurst was named for two people who were involved with Ball State during its early history: Lucia Mysch and Lawrence Hurst.

Mysch was an associate professor of art from 1934 to 1963 at Ball State. She was known for her work in weaving, which she exhibited internationally.

Hurst was an associate professor of social science from 1926 to 1950. He was the author of 61 Years in the School Room, which recounts his early teaching in the country schools of his native Illinois to his 24 years at Ball State.
