The gift of Jay and Mary Hesburgh, Flaherty Hall was established in 2016 and is one of the newest residence halls on campus. Formally dedicated to recognize Mary Hesburgh Flaherty, the niece of former Notre Dame president, Rev. Theodore Hesburgh, C.S.C., and a 1979 graduate from one of the first classes to include women, the hall is located on the Northeast corner of campus. The majority of residents in the hall’s first year were comprised of former residents from Pangborn Hall, when the Pangborn community transitioned to Flaherty.  Flaherty was built in the neo-gothic style, with the chapel visible from the outside.
