mahoney-480x320.jpgMahoney was the final hall converted to a Residential College in 1988. It was dedicated to Daniel J. Mahoney, the late publisher of The Miami News and Chairman of the Board of Trustees for several years. Completed in 1958, Mahoney was an all men’s residence hall until the early 1970s, when it was changed to a coed facility and connected with its mirror image: Pearson Residential College.

Located at the northeast end of campus on the corner of Ponce de Leon Boulevard and Stanford Drive, this residential college is 5 minutes walking distance from the University Center, Merrick and Memorial buildings, and The Learning Center. The MetroRail station is only 10 minutes away. Mahoney students dine with Pearson students in the cafeteria just west of the college.
