The construction of LaFrentz-Poole Hall marked a significant period in university history in which increasing enrollment necessitated the development of additional living space on campus for students. While the structure was built outside the campus quadrangle, the university could now offer students more on-campus living options. As LMU prepared for increased enrollment, LaFrentz-Poole Hall would provide the infrastructure necessary to allow for growth of the student body.
