Ground broken on new residence hall

March 22, 2018

Campus Connection News

As part of our annual Founders’ Day celebration March 13, Saint Mary’s broke ground on Brother William Hall, a 112-bed, three-story residence hall for first-year students, to be completed in 2019. Brother William Hall will be located on the northeast corner of the Winona Campus; the building will be attached to Pines Hall, which was renamed Bishops Hall on Founders’ Day in commemoration of the Diocese of Winona and most particularly its bishops, who are and have always been great supporters of Saint Mary’s. The new residence hall is made possible by anonymous donors in honor of Brother William’s legacy as president of Saint Mary’s. It will help provide a transformational residential life experience on campus and help attract new students.
