Shay/Loughlen Halls

Shay/Lo opened in 1965. It was built to house female students at the university because of an increasing enrollment of women. They had been housed at St. Elizabeth's Academy in Allegany. The buildings were named for Miss Mary Shay and Dr. John J. Loughlen. The buildings now house male and female students.

During the summer of 2006, Shay and Loughlen were extensively renovated. The residence hall's two wings, housing approximately 400 students in double occupancy rooms on each floor, are connected by a one-story combination entrance, lobby and lounge. The building is faced with red brick to harmonize with other campus buildings.
