Siegfried Hall opened as a women’s residence hall in 1988 thanks to the generosity of father and son alumni, Robert and Ray Siegfried. It became a men’s residence hall in 1997. The men of Siegfried are known for their competitiveness, maintaining an active presence in interhall athletics, and winning championships in all sports. Originally called “The Slammers,” the men of Siegfried became the “Ramblers” in 1997, which is also the name of Notre Dame’s athletic teams before they were called the Fighting Irish. Each winter, Siegfried hosts “Day of Man” in which residents brave the cold wearing shorts, T-shirts, and flip-flops to raise money for the South Bend Center for the Homeless.
