Murray-Dodge Hall

The Home of Spiritual Activities at Princeton

Murray-Dodge Hall is a beloved, gracious building on the Princeton University campus.  Built in 1879, Murray-Dodge Hall houses the deans and staff of the Office of Religious Life as well as a number of campus ministries. Murray-Dodge Hall provides a much-loved community space where we serve cookies and tea every day to anyone who wants to stop by, along with spaces for prayer, meetings, programs, and quiet study. 

At Murray-Dodge Hall we offer, or support, religious services in various traditions and denominations for the University and the broader Princeton community, including midweek Christian praise services, weekly Jumma Prayer, Hindu pujas, Buddhist meditation, and opportunities for studying the sacred texts.

Murray-Dodge Café 

Murray Dodge Cafe

The Murray-Dodge Café is an informal, underground meeting place serving (free!) fresh-baked cookies, coffee, and tea!  Our dedicated and experienced PU student staff helps to make this a great place to take a study break, meet some new friends, or reconnect with old ones!  Open daily during the academic year, all Princeton University students are welcome to stop by the kindest place on campus!

Our entrance is located on the Art Museum side of Dodge Hall.
