Holes Hall Demolition

From 1965-2014, Holes Hall was home to tens of thousands of St. Cloud State students. Its small rooms, modest amenities and large, common bathrooms no longer appeal to young people. University leaders, MnSCU officials and construction consultants have deemed it cost-prohibitive to remodel.

For the near term, Holes Hall will be demolished and the site will be converted to green space.

In months leading up to the demolition, St. Cloud Fire Department and St. Cloud Police Department have used Holes Hall as a training site.
