Established in 2002 and named after Rev. J. Stuart McPhail, O.P. ’61, who served as the Vice President for Student Affairs for 18 years, McPhail’s is a great place to meet friends, attend an event, or grab a milkshake. This multipurpose facility features casual seating, a dance floor made from the panels of the original Alumni Hall gym floor, a pool table, ping pong table, shuffle board, numerous televisions, a stage, and a 31 foot bar. We’re located in Slavin LL10 (Lower Slavin) and we’re open seven days a week!

The snack bar offers munchies such as soft drinks, milkshakes, and popcorn (which is always free!). Bar service is available six days a week for those 21+ with proper ID.

Events held on a regular basis in McPhail’s include:

  • Fri-Yay! Sponsored by the Office of Student Activities/ Cultural Programming and McPhail’s.
    This event happens on Fridays to celebrate the end of the week from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm with $3 drafts, $4 IPAs and Free Pizza and Popcorn.  
  • Football & Basketball Watch Parties!
    Join fellow sports fans and watch the game in McPhail’s! Enjoy free food like pizza, calzones, and wings!  
  • Bingo and Trivia Nights
    These are some of our favorite nights in McPhail’s! Bring friends and join in the fun while enjoying a milkshake or draft.
