Maria Hall is a four-floor residence hall with floor lounges and study rooms on each floor. It’s connected to Lourdes Hall by an underground tunnel, making it easy access the dining hall, fitness center and pool when the weather turns cold.
Or you can always step outside and stroll through the corridor of trees in the park-like area behind Lourdes. This greenspace is perfect for tossing a Frisbee or football with friends. It’s also great if you are looking for a quiet spot to study in the sun or shade.
For the 240 or so students who live there, Maria Hall is a friendly and welcoming community where you are able to get to know your neighbors down the hall as well as you know your roommate.
Through planned hall events, house competitions and causal get-togethers in lounges and recreation rooms, the students in Maria Hall form a tight-knit community of friends.
