Yale Graduate School of Arts and Sciences

McDougal Graduate Student Center

The McDougal Center has services and facilities designed specifically for graduate students and postdocs. Created in 1997 through a generous gift from Alfred McDougal ’53 and his wife Nancy Lauter, its mission extends beyond the walls of HGS throughout Yale and New Haven. The Center is a great physical space, with the neo-gothic Common Room and Blue Dog Café, meeting rooms, a children’s play area and family resource room, a computer cluster, and offices for the Graduate Student Assembly and the McDougal staff and fellows.
