Hickey Dining Hall

Dining Space

The Hickey Dining Hall was built following the burning of the St. Bonaventure monastery and church in 1930. It is designed in the traditional Italian style that many other early structures on campus offer. The meals for the students, faculty and staff were cooked by Poor Clare sisters from the 1920s to the 1960s. The dining hall underwent renovations during the summer of 2006 for the first time since 1987.
