2 couples give $20 million each to Notre Dame for 2 dormitories

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Two couples have each donated $20 million to the University of Notre Dame for two new residence halls that will open in August.

The donations were made by Jimmy and Susan Dunne of New York City and Jay and Mary Flaherty of Los Angeles. The buildings are located near the Hesburgh Library. Each building is approximately 71,000 square feet, with accommodations for 226 women in Flaherty Hall and 221 men in Dunne Hall.

Flaherty Hall was formally dedicated to recognize Mary Hesburgh Flaherty, a 1979 Notre Dame graduate from one of the first classes to include women. She is the niece of the late Rev. Theodore Hesburgh, who served as the university’s president from 1952 to 1987.
