Repurposing Sullivan and Huesman Halls for a Second Life

Much of Huesman Chapel, from the stained glass to the furniture, will be saved and moved to new locations around campus.

If you thought LMU’s recycling program only extended to paper and plastic – think again. Despite Sullivan and Huesman Halls making way for new dormitories, much of the original buildings will live on as part of the university’s commitment to waste reduction.

Much of the furniture – and even the door locks! – in the old residence halls will be repurposed into new locations around campus. The theater chairs from DejaView Movie Lounge will be donated to the Theatre Arts program, while the orange trees will also be replanted in a new home on campus.

The stained glass of Huesman Chapel, which has presided over Mass since 1947, will be preserved as part of LMU history, with the chapel’s furniture relocating to Sacred Heart Chapel.
