Rooms and Spaces for Grad Student Organization Events

Yale has no centralized system to reserve rooms or spaces for student organization events. As leaders, you may have to get creative to find available space to meet your event needs. Some spaces are only available to certain kinds of organizations, groups/members from specific schools, at certain times (after classes), or for specific purposes. Many campus spaces are free for registered student organizations to use. Some may charge a fee or require a security deposit and cleanup costs. Here are some of the Yale spaces that graduate student organizations can use for their events:

For information regarding outdoor spaces, refer to the University Life Website.
