Notre Dame announces construction of new men’s residence hall

A new men’s residence hall is currently under construction, the University announced Tuesday in a press release. The new dorm will be located on East Quad between Johnson Family Hall and McCourtney Hall, where construction is also underway for a new research building.

The new dorm is part of a 2017 plan to strengthen campus residential communities, which included increasing the on-campus residency requirement to six semesters, according to the release.

Located on East Quad, the new residence hall will sit east of Dunne and Flaherty Halls and south of Johnson Family Hall.

The release said the four-story, 79,000-square-foot dorm will house approximately 260 students and adhere to Notre Dame’s collegiate gothic architecture style. The building, not yet officially named, will offer a variety of room types including singles, doubles, quads and six-person rooms.

Set to open in the summer of 2024, the residence hall will feature an arched opening on the first floor that allows pedestrians to travel east-west via an existing sidewalk.
