Originally built for a nurses' residence for the old French Hospital, the Pedro Arrupe building was leased by USF in 2000 to serve as a student residence hall. This residence hall was named Pedro Arrupe, in honor of the former Superior General of the Society of Jesus. In addition to being the first Superior General to visit USF, Fr. Pedro Arrupe is also known for his missionary work in Japan and his heroic assistance to the victims of the Hiroshima bombing. Pedro Arrupe Hall is a handsome red brick building is located on 6th Avenue, across from the Richmond Police Station and adjacent to Kaiser Permanente French Campus. Even though it is one mile from campus, two nearby bus routes afford students an easy commute to USF.
