McGuire Hall

McGuire and Caughlin Halls are "twin" buildings located on South Campus. Both halls opened in 1988. Each of the three-story buildings traditionally houses 120-150 residents in double and converted triple rooms.

McGuire Hall is named in honor of Rev. Francis X. McGuire, OSA, who served as Villanova's President between 1944 and 1954. During Fr. McGuire's tenure, the College of Nursing and the School of Law were founded.
