Project Overview

Murphy Family Hall, previously known as Donnellon Hall, marked UHS’ first project on the St. Thomas University campus. This extensive renovation focused on transforming the one-bedroom dorm-style units into what we refer to as ‘Hybrid-Style’ units, which offer a blend of dormitory and apartment living. In these units, two double-occupancy bedrooms share a private restroom and a compact living area, resulting in a more appealing and student-friendly housing option.

The exterior of the building underwent a revitalization to harmonize with the recent Cascia Hall Renovation, adopting a stucco and brick facade. Additionally, the lobby was redesigned to incorporate larger glass areas, allowing ample natural light to filter in while offering scenic views of the surrounding campus.
