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.
A native of Conroe, Texas, Justin McDevitt became the rector of Stanford Hall in 2016. He earned his Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of Houston, his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Loyola Chicago, and his Master’s degree in Political Science from the University of Notre Dame. Prior to Notre Dame, Justin worked as a budget analyst for a government contractor in Iraq and lived and served in a residence hall at Loyola where he developed a reputation for hospitality and cultivated his love for community. While pursuing his Master’s degree at Notre Dame, Justin discovered great joy in working with undergraduate students and decided to become a rector. He enjoys reading and writing, playing music, traveling, and cooking.
