[My reply] Tangent -- come on -- even St Benedict would approve of the reuse -- if the place built for the monks is used for graduate students
Grad students are the closest thing today [in the secular world] to new initiates in a traditional monastery say 1000 years ago
While the monastic orders mostly were into preservation of the knowledge-base created by the ancients until such time as it would be useful again -- the modern grad student is all about creating the new Knowledge Base -- how it is to be treated by posterity is unknown and unknowable
So let the graduate students appreciate / enjoy? the quasi/pseudo neo-medieval monastic calming aesthetics as they drive us relentlessly into the future!
 there were of course quite a few new contributions provided by monks of many orders while they were doing their preservation work -- one notable one was the several hundred years of work [1400 - 1600] leading up to the Gregorian Calendar, another notable one was the invention of modern farming methods by Cistercian monks
+1. Years ago when I toured Dartmouth I remember there were some atrocious 1960s/70s dorms they called "the showers." These basically look like that. I have a feeling that rather sooner than later we'll all be hoping a whole lot of schlock built the last 10 years gets rebuilt, or at least refaced.Mid-2010's to present cladding trends are going to be instantly dateable ... That gorgeous church and so rare-for-the-area Spanish architecture rectory building don't deserve the trendy, anti-complementary box next to it.
