Copley Hall - Dormitory
Named for Fr. Thomas Copley S.J., this neo-gothic residence hall opened in 1932. During the 1930s, informal dances were often held in the newly constructed building. Adjacent to the Healy Building, Copley emulates its gothic façade with a gray stone structure and arched doorways. Copley Lawn, located directly in front of the building, is a common site for student activity events such as barbecues, fairs, and concerts. It also serves as a popular site to study, throw a frisbee, or just relax during sunny days.
