Built in 1957, Stanford Hall was the gift of University lay trustee Grattan T. Stanford ’04. The hall shares an entrance lounge, chapel, and friendly rivalry with the adjoining Keenan Hall. The rivalry culminates in the annual “Battle for the Chapel,” an interhall football game that determines the residence hall that will get the naming rights of the shared chapel for the year. The men of Stanford host a variety of events each year, including the annual pirate dance, Irish Iron Classic, Men of Virtue Dinner, and Stanford TED Talks. The hall also sends a group of residents to volunteer at the South Bend Center for the Homeless every Friday afternoon. Stanford was last named Hall of the Year in 2016-2017.
