Welsh Family Hall was built in 1997 to house female undergraduate students. Welsh Family's chapel is named for the Saint Kateri Tekakwitha. The women of Welsh have a strong interhall sports history, competing with at least one team. Residents are three-time women's interhall football champions. Welsh Family's have several signature events each year including Kiss the Pig and Claire Murphy Thomas 5K. The hall is committed to provide opportunities for service and spiritual development. Welsh Family Hall was named “Hall of the Year” for the 2005-2006. Welsh Family Hall is handicap accessible and room 128 was the first handicap accessible room at Notre Dame.
Conveniently located north of the Eck Visitor's Center and Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore and west of the Morris Inn, Welsh Family is the Eastern-most residence hall on West Quad. Notable past residents include basketball standouts Ruth Riley '01 and Niele Ivey '00.
