Brick & Mortar Fund

Garner and Forbes Residence Halls were constructed in 1958, and have housed thousands of University of Illinois students over the years. Having outlived their useful lives, Garner Hall was demolished in summer 2012 and Forbes Hall in summer 2013.

You can still preserve a small part these historic halls for yourself and your family.

For your donation to the University of Illinois Foundation of $150, you will receive an numbered, authentic brick from the exterior of Forbes Hall and a commemorative photograph. Your donation will be used to fund room and board waivers for current students at the University of Illinois.

A limited number of Forbes Hall bricks remain available. Garner Hall bricks are sold out.
