Story

Walsh Library was built in 1994, and was named for Frank B. Walsh, Jr., University regent and donor. The twenty million dollar building, known as the “Jewel of Campus” marked the beginning of Seton Hall’s technological transformation. The four story building houses the university library, Archives & Special Collections Center and art gallery. It features over 600,000 volumes, study rooms, and Dunkin Donuts. The large rotunda can be seen from all points on campus. When standing under the rotunda, inspirational and historical quotes can be seen.
