Inscription.
Varsity Village (1939)
Built to accommodate students who were then housed in St. Vincent's Hall, these six Tudor-style houses once stood on the bank of a small lake that existed on campus. For many years they were used exclusively by male senior students. Today, five of the houses are still used as dorms.
Timon Hall (1952)
The present structure was built in 1952 to replace the Terzi Dorms, three wood-frame barracks used during World War II and named for a Niagara war hero, Joseph A. Terzi, Class of '41. Originally a dormitory for men, it became a women's dormitory before being converted into faculty offices. The Most Rev. John Timon, C.M. (1797-1867), served as the first bishop of Buffalo (1847-1867) and co-founded the university with the Rev. John J. Lynch, C.M.
 
Erected by Niagara University.
