Sorin Community in Zahm Hall

Sorin Community in Zahm Hall

Built in 1937, Zahm Hall is named in honor of Rev. John Augustine Zahm, C.S.C., a 1871 Notre Dame graduate who, as a scientist, Dante scholar, and international explorer, was the renaissance man of his day. His efforts as Vice President of Notre Dame and later as Provincial of the Indiana Province of the Congregation of Holy Cross helped lay the groundwork for the modern research institution Notre Dame is today.

The Sorin community will reside in the Zahm Hall facility for the 2021-22 academic year while Sorin Hall receives a full-year renovation.
