Legacy Hall

In the fall of 2008, Legacy hall was completed. Legacy Hall was named in honor of the Alumni who are now sending their relatives to Benedictine, carrying on the legacy of education at Benedictine College. Legacy Hall holds 16 occupants. The complex was completed during the sesquicentennial of Benedictine College, emphasizing the residential tradition the school carries forward. The Apartments offer students the luxury of living in an apartment while still being on campus. Other features include a class room and two conference rooms.
