Details: In recognition of the steadfast generosity and support it has received from one of its alumnus and trustees, John C. Meditz, '70, of Weehawken, N.J., Fairfield University is naming and dedicating a recently constructed residence hall as Meditz Hall. (The residence hall has temporarily been known as 51 McInnes Road.) Most recently, Mr. Meditz has gifted $10 million to the University for one of its current strategic priorities - the transformative expansion and modernization of the Leslie C. Quick Jr. Recreation Complex. The gift adds to other major contributions that Mr. Meditz has made in recent years, including gifts that enabled the University to construct and establish the Bellarmine Museum of Art, to endow the Directorship of the museum, and to create additional endowed student scholarships.

Meditz Hall is an apartment-style residence hall for close to 200 juniors and seniors and is part of the Village residential area which also includes Kostka Hall, Claver Hall, 47 Mahan Road, and Faber Hall. Meditz Hall has been temporarily known as 51 McInnes Road since its opening in 2011 and includes multiple common gathering spaces and 4, 6, and 8 person apartments with double bedrooms, living room, kitchen and dining area, and 1-2 bathrooms.
