Copley Hall is a traditional, co-ed, upperclassmen residence hall. Named for Fr. Thomas Copley S.J., this neo-gothic hall opened in 1932 and is a gray stone structure with arched doorways located across from the main gates. Directly in front of the building is Copley Lawn, a common site for student activity events such as barbecues, fairs, and concerts. It also serves as a popular site to study, throw a frisbee, or just relax during sunny days!

Copley is one of the oldest residence halls on campus. There are many special features and spaces connected to the building, including St. William’s Chapel, Copley Formal Lounge, the Muslim Prayer Room, and the Copley Crypt Chapel of the North American Martyrs. Copley also contains a Multi-Purpose Room in the basement level for resident use.
