Carpenter Tower

The building was the Catholic Knights Tower when it first opened in 1922. Marquette leased the building as a women's residence hall in 1956 and bought it in 1960, and in 1972, it became the university's first coed residence hall. The building is dedicated to three contributors: Mary A. Carpenter, Michael Carpenter and Matthew A. Carpenter.
