Venues

Yale’s expansive campus comprises over 200 buildings across more than 20 city blocks of downtown New Haven. Yale Conferences & Events knows every square inch of Yale’s campus, so whether you need a meeting space with seating for two or 2,500, we have you covered. Most of our event spaces are located in close proximity to our housing and dining areas. Many of our facilities have been recently renovated, yet all share Yale’s characteristic charm.

Please note that we only manage these spaces during the summer months. During the academic year, Yale employees can book these spaces directly through the Office of the Registrar by contacting 203.432.2330.

The following are just a few examples of our spacious and technologically equipped meeting areas.
