Part of Dwight Hall, it was built in 1842-46 as the college library. In 1932, with “the removal of the books” to the new Sterling Memorial Library, the large central space was converted to create the Dwight Memorial Chapel in honor of Timothy Dwight. The Chapel seats 120 with flexible seating and holds the Bozyan Memorial Organ built by Rudolf von Beckerath in 1971.
The Chapel hosts weekly Sunday services of the International Church at Yale (11 a.m.) and the Episcopal Church at Yale (5 p.m.), as well as Wednesday evening Taizé Evening Prayer services (9 p.m.). On Fridays, the Chapel hosts Jummah prayers for the Muslim Students Association (1 p.m.). Many other religious and musical groups also use the Chapel.
