Nazareth Hall is a lively part of the campus since it houses the main dining facility on campus while also providing classroom space. It is a hub of activity throughout the day and has been so during the eight decades of the university's existence. Its chapel reflects the heart of the university's mission based on the Catholic faith. Alumni cherish their memories from this significant place on the college's campus.

The building was designed by the Philadelphia architectural and engineering firm, Ballinger & Perrot (formed by Walter F. Ballinger and Emile G. Perrot), which produced several works in the realm of industrial architecture and workers' housing as well as churches, schools, and commercial structures.

In 2000, renovations were made to the building with the addition of air conditioning, improved heating units, and sprinkler systems.
