Arrupe Hall


Pedro Arrupe, S.J. Hall opened in Fall 2016 as a suite style building available to upperclass students. Arrupe Hall is also home to the French Floor, one of Georgetown University’s Living Learning Communities.

Pedro Arrupe, S.J. (1907-1991) has been called “The Second Founder” of the Society of Jesus. Confronted by momentous world events that helped shape his interior life, Arrupe was chosen to lead the Jesuits through a tumultuous period of ecclesial and cultural renewal after the Second Vatican Council. In the spirit of Ignatius Loyal who sought the greater glory of God and the well being of humankind, Arrupe championed a spirituality meant to engage the world rather than to retreat from it. As a result, Arrupe leaves a legacy that enriches not only Jesuits, but the world at large. His legacy is one of “men and women for others,” committed to human dignity, the common good, and the integration of lay men and women into the Jesuit mission — the service of faith and the promotion of justice.
