Originally the scholasticate for Holy Cross brothers, Carroll Hall was sold to the university in the late 1960s and converted to a men’s residence hall. It is named after Charles Carroll of Carrollton, cousin of Bishop John Carroll and only Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence. The Holy Cross brothers lived in the building when it was known as Dujarie Institute and St. Andre Bessette, a Holy Cross brother, lived in the building during two General Chapters. Carroll Hall was named Notre Dame’s “Hall of the Year” in 2000-2001. Located on St. Mary’s Lake, Carroll Hall has some of the largest student rooms on campus—and some of the best views of the Golden Dome and Basilica. The men of Carroll Hall proudly refer to the hall as "The Lakeside Estate."
