Pierson College boasts some of the nicest facilities out of all the residential colleges.  Just inside the York Street gates you will find our beautiful Dining Hall, Common Rooms, and Library. Downstairs, our basement area, renovated in 2004, boasts many amenities for Piersonites.  Whether you’re looking for a place to workout, play ping pong or a game of pool, grab a late-night snack, bake some cookies, practice a musical instrument, or do some laundry, you need look no further than our basement facilities. And, on cold, snowy nights, you can use the basement to access the Dining Hall from your suite without going outside!
