Knowlton residents must know or be studying a language and are placed in rooms near others who speak that language. Knowlton Dining Hall will be converted to the Global Learning Lab (formerly Language and Culture Center) during the Fall 2017 transformation of Blaustein Humanities Building's first floor into the Walter Commons for Global Study and Engagement. The language tables now are found in Freeman Dining Hall.
