San Francisco Hall


Opened in Fall 2013, San Francisco Hall (LEED certified) is an integral link to the Institute of Environmental Sustainability. The residence hall houses approximately 400 students living with eco-friendly features and is connected to a cafe, greenhouse and clean energy laboratory.  Several rooms overlook the buildings light-filled EcoDome. San Francisco Hall is also home to the Loyola's GreenHouse learning community.

The building has three full kitchen lounges with electric stove tops, ovens, dishwashers and refrigerators for community's use. The building also houses two recreational lounges and a multipurpose room all with the latest HDTV capabilities. Laundry facilities are located in the building along with study lounges on every floor. This state-of-the-art living-learning laboratory promotes sustainable living through in-hall composting, geothermal heating and cooling systems, and rooftop rail water collection and purification system. The rooms, lounges, and hallways are carpeted.

Each floor has 2-3 Resident Assistants (student staff members) who put on events and programs for residents to attend, participate, and interact with one another.   Residents enjoy building community with neighbors and fellow residents which lead to lasting friendships.  Residents are also influenced by San Francisco's green features aimed at living a more sustainable life.  Take a look at a tour of San Francisco Hall.
