Walsh Hall, completed in 1959, contains 12 furnished apartments. It was the last of five residence halls built for married students with no children.

The building is named for Michael Walsh of Nome, a member of the university board of regents from 1943 to 1959. In 1955, Walsh was one of 55 delegates who wrote the draft of Alaska's constitution. The university conferred an honorary doctor of laws degree upon Michael Walsh in 1958.
