Bradfield Hall

The EAS atmospheric science program offices and classrooms are on the 11th floor of Bradfield Hall. Facilities include state-of-the-art computer workstations for students, a computer teaching laboratory, and Northeast Regional Climate Center.

The Bradfield/Emerson complex was completed in 1969 by Ulrich Franzen Associates of New York at an original construction cost of $6.2 million. Bradfield Hall was named after Professor Emeritus Richard Bradfield, an internationally recognized soils and crops specialist.


Standing eleven stories high, Bradfield remains the tallest building on campus. Most of its laboratories are climate-controlled, so the majority of the building was designed without windows. however, the windows of the 11th floor provide spectacular views of Cornell's campus and the Cayuga Lake valley.
