The Morris Inn | Mar. 20, 2013
After 60 years of continuous, dedicated service, the iconic Morris Inn closed its doors on October 21, 2012 to undergo an extensive expansion and renovation. When it reopens at the end of August, members of the Notre Dame community, parents, alumni, and our many visitors and guests from all over the world will be warmly welcomed back to the “living room” of the University.
The Morris Inn was originally built with a gift from Ernest M. and Ella L. Morris. Now, a gift from their daughter has made this renovation possible. “Thanks to the generosity and leadership of longtime Notre Dame friends, Ernestine Raclin and her family, The Morris Inn is now positioned to continue the University’s tradition of outstanding hospitality, service and excellence,” said John Affleck-Graves, executive vice president.
