Cray Seaberg Hall is found at the north-western corner of the Benedictine College campus.  The entire building was recently renovated in 2010 and has the capacity to house forty-two students. Cray Seaberg Hall is a multi-purpose building with two floors being used for classrooms and offices and the third floor as a Residence Hall. The twenty-one dorm rooms are spacious and have been newly furnished. All rooms have their own private restroom for comfort and privacy and some also have a private shower. The common lounge is central to the building and serves as a great place to engage in conversation or enjoy the game with friends on massive flat screen TV.  Adjacent to the lounge is a new kitchen that features all new appliances and serves as a great place to prepare meals or snacks.
