Walter Schott Hall

In the mid-1960's, the Xavier Jesuit Community outgrew Hinkle Hall. Through the generosity of the Walter E. Schott Family Foundation, a new 10-story residential building was constructed for the community and appropriately named Schott Hall. Today, the building is the home of a number of offices and departments, including the Office of Admission, making it the first building on campus that most prospective students and their families visit.
