McKillop Library

The McKillop Library is a state-of-the-art facility that holds approximately 150,000 volumes and also accommodates the University’s computer labs. Completed in 1991, the library is named in honor of Sister Lucille McKillop, who served as president of Salve Regina from 1973-1994.

The library’s spacious, comfortable atmosphere provides plenty of room for individual and group study, along with a Learning Commons and an electronic classroom for instructional purposes.

Designed by the architectural firm of Robinson Green Beretta, the 70,000-square-foot structure echoes the Gothic lines of Wakehurst to the north. Other ornamental details, such as finials on the library’s gabled peaks, are reflective of other mansions in the Ochre Point neighborhood.
