Ganędagǫ: Hall

A residence hall with vertical flat panels, and glass and metal. A plaza in front has tables and chairs and small trees.

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 member, and Resident Advisors will host programs and activities for all interests that help students meet new friends and make connections to the university community.

Starting 2024-2025, Ganędagǫ: Hall will house sophomore students.
