In May 2015, President Salovey announced that Yale College alumnus Stephen A. Schwarzman ‘69 is giving $150 million to create a state-of-the-art campus center by renovating the historic University Commons and Memorial Hall. For the first time, Yale will have a building dedicated to student life. We have the opportunity to restore a 114-year-old facility to create an unsurpassed center serving all students and a place of exceptional programming. The complex is extensive; the four floors of the two buildings total over 87,000 square feet. The project is a cornerstone of Yale President Peter Salovey’s vision to build a more unified, accessible, and innovative university.
