Completed in 2011, the newest residence hall at Holy Cross is a four-story, 60,000-square foot building. Figge Hall accommodates 156 seniors in 39 apartments that consist of a living room, dining area, full kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms. There are six Residence Life staff members who live and work in the building, five resident assistants (RAs), and a head resident assistant (HRA). The director of orientation and transition programs also lives in the building.
On the ground floor, there is a function room that is used by residents of the building as well as by other students or faculty and staff to host social gatherings. There is also a laundry room on the first floor and each floor has a study room. A gas grill on the north side of the building is available for residents to use. Since the apartment building houses seniors, hall programming includes workshops and other events to help residents with job searches and prepare for life after Holy Cross.
