Ganędagǫ: Hall


About Us

Ganędagǫ: Hall is part of Cornell's Sophomore Village, and will house upperlevel students in the future. For the 2021-2022 academic year, Ganędagǫ: Hall will house first-year students.

Ganędagǫ: Hall is named in the language of the Gayogo̱ hó꞉nǫ’, the name for the Cayuga Nation in their own language. Ganędagǫ: (pronounced Gah-NEH-dah-go), means “ It's in the hill,” which was the ancestral name for the land upon which Cornell is built. The naming was supported by the Cayuga Nation’s current leadership.

Through creative floor plans, Ganędagǫ: Hall provides living spaces with a modern aesthetic that enhances the residential experience and encourages interaction and collaboration among students. Ganędagǫ: Hall aims to draw students out of their individual rooms and into ample common areas that support group study, social interaction, and programs in spacious lounges and nearby cafés. Ganędagǫ: Hall's Residence Hall Director, Faculty-in-Residence, and Resident Advisors will host programs and activities for all interests that help students meet new friends and make connections to the university community.
