Saint Xavier University: McCarthy and Morris Residence Halls

Having successfully completed several construction projects for the university, Henry Bros. Co. was selected to build two new residence halls.

The combined $12 million, three-story facilities were completed just one year apart. The apartment-style halls offer a combined 55 suites, each with two bedrooms, two baths, a kitchenette, and a shared living space. Every room is air-conditioned and cable/internet ready. Each floor offers laundry facilities and a student lounge. Morris Hall is home to ‘Cougar Bytes,’ a cybercafe featuring Starbucks products. The exterior of the residence halls features lush landscaping and outdoor seating.
