Mary Frances Hall

Exterior Dorm

Mary Fran is the Place to Be!

Named for our foundress, Mother Mary Frances Clarke, Mary Frances Hall was built in 1924. Designed by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright, the hall has a character all its own with varied room sizes and shapes, high ceilings and hardwood floors. Today, it houses approximately 100 junior and senior men and women.

Mary Frances Hall is coed by floor. Students that are in good academic standing (GPA of 2.40 or higher), of junior or senior standing or 21 years of age and complete a housing application may live in this residence hall.

This is a tobacco-free building. Alcohol is permitted in rooms where students are 21 years or older as long as all guests are of age during consumption.
