Campus Grounds

The Rockefeller University maintains a lush and beautiful 14-acre campus by using green horticultural practices. Located on the east side of Manhattan, the university's landscaping was designed by noted landscape architect Dan Kiley in 1956 and imitates the idea of outdoor "rooms." Money received from energy rebates goes towards purchasing native plants.

Check out the Rockefeller tree map and identify some specimens while strolling on campus.
