Grace Hopper

Grace Hopper is named for mathematician, pioneer in computer sciences, and naval officer who received a master’s degree in mathematics (1930) and a Ph.D. in mathematics (1934) from Yale.

Hopper has a 2-story suite known as “Bookworld” near a patio referred to as “The Castle,” which overlooks the courtyard. Hopper’s dining hall contributes enormously to day-to-day life for its residents. “Hoppers” and “Hoplites” enjoy their meals in a dining atmosphere which boasts columned arches, rich wood-paneled ceilings, and two fireplaces – one with the Hopper crest, the other with a portrait of Roosevelt “Rosey” Levander Thompson.

We are Grace Hopper

Dining at Hopper is an experience with the warm comforts of home! Our team will go aboce and beyond to know our guests by name and the special requests they may have. Hopper is known for a variety of over the top pop-up events – including specialty Nutella and strawberry crepes for Valentine’s Day! Hopper hosts their own “Fall Fest” in the courtyard with candy, caramel apple dipping and pumpkin carving. We can’t forget the famed Holiday dinner, complete with a nostalgic train set encircling the Christmas tree while the aroma of Mrs. Clause’s cookies fills the air.
