Ezra Stiles

Ezra Stiles College and adjoining Morse College were built in 1961-62. Stiles has long been nicknamed “Little Tuscany” due to its pre-Gothic Tuscan towers style. 

A unique feature of Ezra Stiles dining hall is the large mounted moose head that looks out over its seating area. The moose is named for former Ezra Stile’s Head of College, Bart Giamatti, Yale’s youngest president, who in 1989 became U.S. Commissioner of Baseball. Stiles hosts an annual “Medieval (K)night” in April when students enjoy a medieval banquet and dramatic re-enactments of “Beowulf” dragon battles.

The dining hall offers a striking departure from the design of more traditional college halls and is dominated by grid-like rafters, contemporary lighting, and stone and glass verticals that soar 30 feet.
