Constructed in 1882 as a boarding school, St. Edward’s is the oldest residence hall on campus. With a mural painted by Luigi Gregori, the same artist who painted the murals of the Main Building, and French stain glass windows in its chapel, like those of the Basilica, St. Edward’s is the only Notre Dame residence hall listed in the National Register of Historic Places. In 1925, Knute Rockne received his First Communion in the hall chapel; four years later St. Edward’s became a men's residence hall.
