St. Michael Hall

St. Michael Hall opened in the fall of 2012. The hall houses 150 sophomore and junior men. The resident life staff has worked to establish some unique traditions for the hall. St. Michael Hall is a beautiful addition to Benedictine’s residential pillar. The building design, with brick and limestone exterior, high ceilings and large windows, creates a bright and inviting space and ties in with the rest of the campus. St. Michael Chapel was opened in St. Michael Hall in the fall of 2013.
