Saint Edward’s Living Learning Center

Open to all men and women accepted into one of the Living Learning Communities

Est. 1957
Saint Edward’s Living Learning Center is a two-story hall originally named for Bishop Edward 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. A new lounge was built and other remodeling completed more recently. This hall is substance-free, and for the safety of its residents, is locked 24 hours.
