Gallagher Student Center

With its clock tower marking the visual focus and entrance, Gallagher Student Center sits between the residential and academic malls of the campus. The architectural style fuses Collegiate Gothic with the more contemporary 1950s and 1960s grace of neighboring buildings.

The Center, often referred to as the "campus living room," is organized into three overlapping components. The office component serves administrative staff, student organizations and the bookstore. The social component includes lounges, retail, entertainment and food service. The performing-arts component contains a scene shop, rehearsal space and a 350-seat theater. All are organized around a four-story atrium.

At the dedication ceremony on September 26, 2002, Charles Gallagher, a 1960 graduate, received the Founders' Day Award for ensuring that the Center was built. In tribute to his close friend and former Xavier roommate, Stephen Ryan, the Center's pub was named after him.
