Now home to about 248 undergraduate women after opening in the fall of 2009, Ryan Hall is the newest of Notre Dame’s residence halls. Notre Dame is known for its structure of single-sex halls, allowing 80 percent of all students to live on campus and to build an enduring sense of community. Most students spend their entire four years as members of the same residential community.
Each of the 29 residence halls is led by a rector, who oversees the community’s well-being and provides guidance on an individual basis to students in the joys and challenges encountered in college life. Like every residence hall, Ryan Hall has its own chapel for regular community Masses and times for personal reflection. New design elements include the addition of classrooms and an increase in the proportion of single rooms.
