Welcome to Cary, the "flagship" of the Purdue Residence Halls. As one of the largest all male housing units in the country, Cary is truly one of Purdue's unique features. Our architecture, immense courtyard, and large activity spaces allow us flexibility no other hall can match. From large events to a quiet study room, Cary has it all.

History of Cary
Cary Hall opened in 1928. Franklin Masten Cary was born in Detroit, Michigan, May 27, 1858, a son of Captain Charles H. and Eliza Cary, and on November 23, 1892, he married Miss Jessie Levering. They had one son, Franklin Levering Cary who died in 1912 at the age of 19.
After his retirement, Mr. Cary devoted increasing time and thought to philanthropies. He purchased 41 acres of land, east of Lafayette, and presented it to the local Boy Scouts organization as a campsite, in memory of his son. He was a financial contributor to the first men's residence hall at Purdue. The hall was named in honor of his son. As the University grew, so did the need for housing. Cary now has five separate buildings and is referred to as Cary Quadrangle.
