In early October, Georgetown University dedicated its new Pedro Arrupe, S.J. Hall. The Georgetown community celebrated Arrupe Hall’s official opening with speeches by administration and students, followed by a ribbon-cutting and reception. Dedicated to Pedro Arrupe, SJ, a prominent Jesuit priest, the new residence building exemplifies his commitment to community service and his passion for justice.
Arrupe Hall was designed to enhance Georgetown’s living and learning initiative, which integrates academic education and residential life. The new residence hall is home to two living and learning communities, a chaplain and faculty-in-residence, as well as community gathering spaces to encourage collaboration and interaction.
Sasaki Principal Vinicius Gorgati, AIA, LEED AP expressed, “This project represents a new model for residential life on campus in its embrace of living and learning as a key cornerstone of the Georgetown experience. Arrupe Hall takes that message to heart by promoting student life through a unique combination of inviting and lively indoor and outdoor spaces.”
Congratulations to Georgetown!
