Dwight Hall at Yale University

Yale University’s Center for Public Service and Social Justice, commonly referred to as Dwight Hall for the University building in which it is housed, is the largest student run public service organization in the country. The Center serves as a home base for more than 70 student organizations that provide services to 20,000 children and adults every year.

Recently, Yale University and Dwight Hall embarked on an initiative to relocate the organization to 143 Elm Street, a historic building on campus that required significant renovation.

Jonathan Rose Companies was retained by Dwight Hall to advise them on an ongoing basis throughout the lifecycle of this project. Key considerations included flexible facility programming to accommodate offices, meeting rooms and gathering areas, as well as meeting the challenges of introducing environmentally responsible design features to a historic building. The project was designed to meet LEED New Construction Silver certification.
