Saint Edward's Living Learning Center is a two-story hall named after Bishop Fitzgerald, bishop of Winona during the 1950s. Known affectionately as Ed’s, this hall houses approximately 100 students in double rooms, with one men's floor and one women's floor. It is conveniently located next to Toner Student Center and the main cafeteria on campus. During the summer of 2005, Ed’s received a major renovation, with an updated fire alarm and sprinkler system, new furniture, and other amenities.
