Is there really a tunnel under the Green?

Last updated 01/15/08

Urban legend says that it's either a secret parking garage, a burial crypt for influential alumni, or a long, narrow wine cellar. But in fact the tunnel built under the east side of the Dartmouth Green in 1993 isn't anything nearly that interesting. It's simply a utility tunnel, carrying electricity, steam pipes, chilled water pipes and network cables from the Facilities Operations & Management location on the south end of campus north to Baker Library and through to the north end of campus near the McLaughlin Residential Cluster. It was built as a long term replacement for aging infrastructure and to support new construction on campus, including Berry Library, Moore Hall, Sudikoff Laboratory, the McLaughlin Cluster, Life Sciences and other future campus growth.
