Maura Hall was the first student residence hall at the College of New Rochelle and has housed CNR students for 90 years. It is another example of the Collegiate Gothic style that forms the campus quadrangle. The most recent major renovations to Maura Hall were completed in 1990. Deferred maintenance issues include roof repair, stone pointing, and electrical and heating systems.
