Finlay Hall History

Built in 1905 to house the University's Medical School, Finlay Hall was named for the 30th President of Fordham University, Fr. James Finlay, S.J., whose tenure from 1972-84 was marked by the establishment of the Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education, the construction of the Vincent T. Lombardi Memorial Center, and establishment of Fordham's first Westchester campus (on the campus of Marymount College in Tarrytown).  After the medical school was closed, Finlay served as the home of the Chemistry Department until the construction of John Mulcahy Hall.  It then became a residence hall, adding lofted apartments where classrooms and offices had once been and a fourth floor with copper-clad roof and facade. The five-sided eastern face of the building at one time housed an operating theater. Finlay Hall's facade features beautiful examples of cut stone ornamentation and lower floors terrazo from the era of its design and construction.
