Directions to Grace Hopper College

Head southeast on Wall Street towards the Rose Walk, which cuts through Yale’s campus. Turn right onto the Rose Walk, where you will pass Sterling Memorial Library on your right. Inside there is a portrait of Edward Bouchet, who is discussed in our tour of the Hill. Born and raised in New Haven, Bouchet was the first Black person to graduate from Yale, and the first Black person in the country to earn a PhD.

As you continue through Cross Campus, you will pass the Women’s Table on your left. This sculpture made by Maya Lin, tracks the number of women admitted to Yale since its inception. You will notice a lot of zeroes, because for most of Yale’s history women were not admitted. It was not until 1969, in fact, when Yale welcomed women into its undergraduate colleges. 

Continuing on the Rose Walk, you will reach Elm Street, where you will turn left. Before you reach College Street, on your left you will reach your final destination, Grace Hopper College.
