The oldest residence 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.

Building Features

Conveniently located next to the kitchen, the lounge is an area where students are able to prepare and eat meals together.
