Humanities Quadrangle: A cherished Yale icon reimagined

Yale Humanities Quadrangle
April 1, 2021

When he first visited the newly refurbished Humanities Quadrangle (HQ) at 320 York St. — known until recently as the Hall of Graduate Studies — faculty member Kevin van Bladel’s thoughts returned to his days as a Yale graduate student more than two decades ago.

He recalled the camaraderie with fellow students from various fields, their intense intellectual discussions, and the hours upon hours of writing and reading he did within the walls of the iconic building, where he had also lived during his first three years of graduate school.
