The University of Notre Dame has broken ground on a womens residence hall on the West Quad, near the Eck Center.
Underwritten by an anonymous benefactor, the 74,600-square-foot hall will house 248 students when completed in time for the 2009-10 academic year. It will feature a variety of room types and is designed in the Universitys traditional collegiate Gothic style.
The architect for the project is Mackey Mitchell Associates of St. Louis, and the construction manager is Skanska Corp.
Duncan Hall, a new mens residence at the opposite end of the West Quad, is currently under construction and will open this fall.
