About

Baumer Hall is the newest men’s hall in the Notre Dame residential life community, completed in Summer 2019. This $20 million facility is the result of a generous gift from University of Notre Dame alumnus John Baumer and his wife, Mollie. “This University has been part of our family story for three generations,” John Baumer said. “The residence hall experience I had at Notre Dame was the backdrop for the best and most lasting friendships and memories I have made. Sharing every aspect of life with your residence hall community creates a foundation of friendship and support you will build on for the rest of your life. I am deeply grateful for my time in Zahm Hall, and we as a family are delighted that we have the opportunity, through Baumer Hall, to ensure this tradition remains strong and meaningful for future generations.” Baumer Hall is located on the south side of the Notre Dame campus, near to Ryan and Keough Halls. The four-story, 78,000-square-foot structure will house 251 men and feature a two-story lounge, reading room, study rooms, community kitchen, chapel, laundry, vending, storage, exercise room and space for food sales on the lower level.
