Murphy Hall, originally named Becket Hall, opened in 1967 as a house of studies for diocesan seminarians taking courses at St. John Fisher College. In 1980, the building was sold to Fisher as a residential space for its non-seminarian students. It was renamed Murphy Hall in honor of Rev. John C. Murphy, the College's first president.
