Originally known as Xavier Hall, this building was constructed in 1959 and dedicated to Saint Francis Xavier, companion of Saint Ignatius of Loyola and one of the seven founders of the Society of Jesus. Xavier Hall was used as a Jesuit residence until 2003, when the building was renovated to be used for student housing and learning and renamed the Alfred and Hanna Fromm Lifelong Learning Center. Framed by two expanses of green lawn and nestled among trees, Fromm is currently home to the Fromm Institute of Lifelong LearningXARTS, and Fromm Residence Hall, making it a truly intergenerational and multipurpose learning environment.
