At the heart of Winthrop's campus is Joynes Hall, home of the Inn at Winthrop. The Inn at Winthrop features 12 elegantly-appointed suites and is certified by the South Carolina Green Hospitality Alliance as a Two Palmetto facility for green practices that protect and preserve the environment.
Designed in the Neo-Georgian architectural style, Joynes Hall (1926) offers the conveniences and amenities of a modern lodging facility, but in a historic, traditional setting. Its distinctive interiors and generous floor plans boast comfort and elegance unique in the Rock Hill area. Joynes Hall was the first building on the north side of Winthrop’s campus and was originally used as a residence hall for single faculty members. Dr. Edward S. Joynes, its namesake, was a charter member of the Board of Trustees and one of the guiding forces behind Winthrop's founding in 1886. The building currently houses the Office of Admissions, Office of University Events, and The Inn at Winthrop.
