Martin-Schexnider is named after two previous Chancellors at Winston-Salem State University. One of the two towers of the residence hall is named for Dr. Harold L. Martin Sr., who served as chancellor from 2000 until 2006. The other tower is named for Dr. Alvin J. Schexnider, who was chancellor from 1996 until 2000.
Martin-Schexnider Residence Hall is a 44,000 square foot, 227 bed, two tower “pod” concept facility. A one story connector building links the two towers with common space for all residents, including a classroom for group resident instruction in a living learning community.

The rooms are approximately 11 feet by 17 feet in size with two built-in closets.
