Elizabeth Hall

Completed in 1893, Elizabeth Hall served as the original Abbey for the Benedictine monks. It first became used as a residence hall in 1929, when it was known as Freshman Hall. It was completely renovated in 2001.  Now called Elizabeth Hall in honor of Elizabeth Ferrell, it currently houses 152 women on four floors of uniquely stylized rooms, from lofts to suites to apartments. The structure also contains the state-of-the-art Tower Classroom, a meditation room and the Heritage Room, which tells the story of the school’s history.
