Cassat Hall is one of the twin residence halls located at the junction of the North and South Campuses. Cassat Hall is located near the Chlapaty Recreation and Wellness Center, the football field and the other athletic fields. The residence hall is co-ed, with one floor dedicated to women and three floors for men. Cassat Hall houses primarily first year students.
Cassat Hall was built in 1968 and named for David B. Cassat, a successful C.E.O. of Interstate Finance Corporation, active Presbyterian lay leader, and member and chair of the University of Dubuque Board of Directors. The building was financed through government funds and through the Cassat family. The interior of the residence hall underwent major renovation in the summer of 2003.
