A New Dining Hall for Eaglebrook

In March 2024, Eaglebrook broke ground on the construction of the school’s new dining hall, which will be built on Infirmary Field and offer a breathtaking view of the Deerfield Valley. The dining hall is scheduled to open in fall 2025.
For more than half a century, Gibbs Dining Hall has been the heart of campus, the place where students and faculty gather like family to share nourishment and nurture values that last a lifetime. The typical American household eats dinner together just three nights a week. The Eaglebrook community shares 19 weekly meals and gathers for dinner every night.
Once the new dining hall is completed, Gibbs will be thoroughly renovated to serve as a classroom building on the main floor. The Health Center will move into the floor below.
This page features architectural renderings of the new dining hall and a reimagined Gibbs Hall. We invite you to check back frequently for construction updates.
