Two existing buildings in the East Village residential complex, formerly called Alpha and Beta, have been officially named Elizer Hall and Murdy Hall. The names honor Marshall Elizer, longtime administrator at Oxford who died in 2009, and William Murdy, who served as dean from 1987 to 1999. A third building in the complex, Fleming Hall, is under construction and headed for completion by mid-2014. It is named for Bond Fleming, who served as dean from 1966 to 1976.
