Stockbridge Hall

Stockbridge is more than just a building, it is a community where residents respect one another, and support each other as they navigate this uncharted territory we call college. The Hall Director along with the Resident Assistants strive to make a positive impact, help students overcome obstacles, and help build connections and community. We hope that residents will get involved in Hall Government so that they can continue to put on amazing events like Leaf Bowl (Flag Football vs. Churchill), Super Smash Bros. Tournament, Super Bowl Party, March Madness, and End of the Year grill out.

Hall Director

Justin Owen
Phone: (701) 231-3234

Hi everyone! My name is Justin Owen, and I am the Stockbridge Hall Director. I use He/Him/His pronouns. I became an alumnus of Northwest Missouri State University as of May 2022, with a bachelor's degree in Cybersecurity. I moved to Fargo and joined NDSU Residence Life in May of 2022, as well. I love music, video games, comic books, hanging out with others, exercising, and exploring new things. 

I'm very excited to be here and work with everyone. I want to help everyone feel welcome, empowered, and excited to be a Bison. I want to create a better space for all Bison and make them feel like they are at their home away from home. I hope we all have an amazing year and I look forward to seeing you on campus!

In 1955 the State Legislature and the State Bank of North Dakota approved a $600,000 loan to the University for the construction of a new men's residence building. The building was completed in March 1957 and was ready for students the following year. The new residence hall housed 250 men--two men per room. Each room was furnished with two single beds, a chest of drawers and a built-in wardrobe as well as providing both occupants with their own study area (Fargo Forum December 16, 1955; NDAC Alumni Review, March 1957, p. 3).

The new building was a three-story structure measuring 410 feet by 60 feet. The first floor was, perhaps, the most attractive as it contained a furnished lounge with a television viewing area. It also housed the residence hall office and a private room for conferences or parental visits. A completely furnished guest room with a bathroom was also located on the first floor. The manager's apartment complete with a dinette, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom was located on the first floor. The basement contained a large recreation room and a large storage room for the students' luggage. The remaining floors were reserved for student rooms.

The new men's residence was named Stockbridge Hall in honor of the University's first president, Horace E. Stockbridge. Stockbridge was born in 1857 in Hadley, Massachusetts. He attended the Massachusetts Agricultural College and Goettingen University in Germany. He returned to the United States as an associate professor of chemistry at the Massachusetts Agricultural College before leaving to accept a position at the Imperial College of Agriculture and Engineering in Japan. Stockbridge left Japan in 1889 and came to the North Dakota Agricultural College in 1890 to serve as its first president, at the age of thirty-three. He resigned in 1893 and went to Florida State University where he was a professor of agriculture until 1906. Dr. Stockbridge died in 1930.
