Tell me about The Inn at Winthrop.
- We have a total of 12 suites on the third floor of historic
Joynes Hall on the campus of Winthrop University. Joynes is one
of Winthrop's finer examples of the Neo-Georgian
architectural style. It was the first building on the north side
of campus and was originally used as a residence hall for single
faculty members. Its namesake was Dr. Edward S. Joynes, charter
member of the Board of Trustees and one of the guiding forces

houses the Office of Admissions, Office of Public Events, and
The Inn at Winthrop.
