Ireland Residence Hall

Historic Ireland Hall was renovated in 2019, which included revitalizing shared spaces such as study and community rooms, updating residence rooms and bathrooms and making the building accessible.

Loved by many, Ireland was built in 1912. The hall is known for its creative programming and community-building; well-loved traditions include Lavinburgers (peanut butter and jelly sandwiches), the Teeter-Totter Marathon, and more.
