Built in 1984, Archbishop Flores Residence hall at St. Mary’s University has given thousands of students a place to call home for decades. Like its namesake, Archbishop Patrick Flores, it fostered an environment that was welcoming and community-based living, connecting students to one another. This two-story, open apartment-style building is set for demolition due to the university’s effort to revitalize residence life.
St. Mary’s students have seen the hall bustling with life for years. As of the fall of 2017, the hall has been closed for residents only with the exception of emergencies.
