Fr. Mathias F. Doyle, OFM


    The building currently known as Doyle Hall (above) was originally built as a Friary in 1961. It was part of a huge $19 million, three building plan which included Plassmann Hall and a building used as a student union and field house.  The Friary was built to ensure more housing for students and Friars alike. To read more about the Friary and its history, go to the University Chapel site.

    Today, the Old Friary is called Doyle Hall, dedicated in 1990 to the The Very Rev. Mathias F. Doyle, O.F.M, who served as the university president for fifteen years. Doyle Hall is now a student dormitory.  The one-hundred room facility offers its 138 students larger, more spacious rooms than some of the other dormitories.  Doyle Hall has quiet hours that run from 6p.m. to noon, which allows students to study in their rooms comfortably.
