Meadowlands Hall is an elegant Victorian mansion situated within the academic core of the Dominican campus. Built in 1888, this stately mansion once served as the summer home for the family of Michael H. de Young, founder of the San Francisco Chronicle. In 1918, M.H. de Young sold Meadowlands to the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael for a mere ten dollars.

For more than 125 years, Meadowlands has answered some of the Dominican community's most pressing needs, first as a dormitory and later expanding to include an assembly hall, conference rooms, and academic offices. Today, this historic venue is a state-of-the-art health sciences building, housing the Departments of Nursing, Occupational Therapy and Public Health and Health Sciences.
