Branford College

Opened in 1933 and designed by architect James Gamble Rogers, Branford College commemorates the town east of New Haven where a group of ministers met in 1701 and founded Yale. Branford’s dining hall is considered to be one of Yale’s most glorious spaces with natural lighting that rivals that of the Beinecke Library.
