Earl Hall


About Earl Hall

Earl Hall is home to Columbia's religious and community service activity. Previously, Earl Hall served as the University's student health center and featured medical offices in the basement level. Designed by McKim, Mead, and White, it was originally built in 1900-1902 as the outpost of the YMCA on campus before Columbia assumed formal operation.
