Toni Morrison Hall is part of Cornell's Sophomore Village, and houses upper level students.
The hall is named for Toni Morrison, the first African American woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature. Morrison earned a B.S. in English in 1953 at Howard University and a master’s degree in American literature in 1955 at Cornell. An A.D. White Professor-at-Large at Cornell from 1997 to 2003, Morrison returned to the Ithaca campus numerous times over the years.
Through creative floor plans, Toni Morrison Hall provides living spaces with a modern aesthetic that enhances the residential experience and encourages interaction and collaboration among students. Toni Morrison 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.
