Yale University Commons

New Haven, CT

Yale University Commons was once the dining hall for the entire student body.  Food is still served here today, but each of the university residential "colleges" now has it's own dining hall.  The building is part of a complex which also contains Woolsey Hall and the Memorial Rotunda, built in 1901-1902 as part of Yale's bicentennial celebration.  The buildings were designed by, John Carrère and Thomas Hastings, who also designed the New York Public Library.  I love the columns in this building.  


  1. This is a fine looking Greek Revival architecture. Those are great columns.
