Constructed in 1981 as a residence hall for 250 women; Second hall constructed with specific purpose of being a women's hall (PW was the first one year earlier). The largest gift in Notre Dame history from a living person (from Frank and Sylvia Pasquerilla) provided funding for the construction of both Pasquerilla East and West Halls.
Most of the rooms in PE (60%) are doubles. About 20% of the rooms are singles. There are also 6 three-room quads on each floor. Similar layout exists in PW, Knott, and Siegfried.
