Dedicated to Rev. John "Pop" Farley, CSC, standout student-athlete and former rector of Walsh and Sorin, Farley Hall was the first residence hall constructed after World War II as a result of increased need for student housing. Originally constructed as a residence facility for 199 men, Farley was converted to a women’s hall in 1973, serving as the prototype for the stay-hall policy (halls until the late 1960s were divided by class/rank).
Father Hesburgh was the first Rector of Farley Hall. Notable past residents include Dr. Bob Arnot '70 (NBC News Medical Correspondent).
