A commemorative brick is a wonderful way to acknowledge an important event in your life and cement a lifelong connection to Brooklyn. You may purchase a brick to:

  • celebrate a graduation,
  • observe a special occasion,
  • remember a parent,
  • honor a loved one, or
  • leave your personal mark on the college.

Located in front of the entranceway to the West Quad Center, our Commemorative Brick Plaza is composed of custom engraved bricks that are seen daily by thousands of students, faculty, alumni, friends and visitors to the campus. It is a permanent tribute to those individuals who have made Brooklyn College the outstanding institution it is today.

All commemorative brick purchases support the college's Annual Fund — a vital source of unrestricted revenue on which the college relies in order to meet current institutional priorities. This is a special opportunity to make your mark on the college’s history while contributing to the success of future Brooklyn College students.

Standard bricks (4" x 8") cost $500 each, and large bricks (8" x 8") cost $1,000 each. You may personalize your brick as you wish, and the foundation will contact you to confirm your order. All bricks will be prominently displayed in our Commemorative Brick Plaza in front of the West Quad Center. Once your brick is installed, the foundation will inform you of its exact location in the plaza.
