In January 2013, the 97-year-old St. Mary’s Hall closed to begin two years of renovations. Workers will replace 300 windows, 12,000 pieces of cast stone, and 30,000 clay roof tiles. Two new elevators will be installed, and the Jesuit residences on the upper floors of the north and west sides of the building will be refurbished. The top three floors of the south wing, which contained additional Jesuit residences, will be refitted to house the Woods College of Advancing Studies and the departments of communication and computer science when the building reopens in January 2015. Above, masons apply grout in the south wing’s first-floor hallway on May 2.
