Boland Hall was opened in 1952 as Bishop’s Hall. This residence complex was named after Archbishop Thomas Boland, who was the Archbishop of Newark at the time. Boland Hall is now the largest freshman residence. Boland Hall is divided into two halves: Boland North and Boland South. It is home to the Pirate’s Cellar, which is the largest lounge in a residence hall on campus.

In February 2021 it was announced that Boland Hall will undergo renovations. The building is planned to receive a glass-enclosed lobby addition as well as updates to lighting, furniture, and dorm rooms.
