Constructed in 1988, Knott Hall was the first Notre Dame residence hall named for a woman, Marion Burk Knott. Originally built as a women’s residence hall, it was converted to a male hall in 1997. Within the Knott Hall chapel is a statue of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton donated by her grandson, Archbishop Robert J. Seton. The chapel is also home to a sculpture by renowned Croatian sculptor and architect Ivan Mestrovic. The men of Knott annually lead the Aidan Project, a cancer awareness initiative in which students make fleece blankets and write personal notes of encouragement for children undergoing cancer treatment. Knott Hall also annually hosts the AquaKnott and the All Knotter. It was last named Men’s Hall of the Year in 2013.
