The oldest residential hall on campus, Burke has been accommodating students since 1942.

Dennis M. Burke Hall

Burke Hall, named for the second president of St. Norbert College, is located on the south side of campus alongside the Fox River. The four-story coeducational hall houses 200 students. Two-thirds of those students are first-year students who live in double or triple rooms. The building boasts classic colonial style architecture and a beautiful first-floor lounge with a fireplace for quiet socializing and studying.

A newly furnished lounge on Burke’s lower level provides you extra space to socialize, play foosball or air hockey, watch movies or play video games. Burke’s kitchen is also located on the lower level where you’ll have access to two stoves, microwaves, sinks, a refrigerator and basic kitchen utensils.

There is a modern-style chapel on the fourth floor of the building available for reflection.

Each room is furnished with:
  • Two pre-lofted beds*
  • Two closets
  • Two dressers
  • Two desks and chairs
  • Full-length mirror
  • Draperies
*Upperclass singles are not lofted.

Each room has wireless internet and cable TV access.

Phones are located in each hall’s common areas for emergencies.
