St. Bonaventure's Francis Hall

School getting new home in iconic campus building


$17.5 million project to transform historic Francis Hall into a state-of-the-art health education facility.

Built in 1951 to house seminarians attending St. Bonaventure, Francis Hall has been retrofitted over the years to serve a number of university needs, from student housing, classrooms and auxiliary dining facilities to offices for various departments.

This is its biggest, most dramatic transformation to date. Major exterior and interior renovations are creating new classrooms, high-tech laboratories, and offices for the School of Health Professions. The project includes renovations to approximately 125 rooms on the building's second, third and fourth floors for student housing.
