Bear with us.

Renovations on the building were recently completed, and the YSC team is activating a complex of multi-purpose, technology-enabled spaces. As we open Yale’s first-ever center for student life and the arts, we're implementing a vision some six years in the making. 

Kicking the tires takes time.

As we bring the Center to life during this time, we’ll be finalizing programs and bringing dining online. We’ll be fine tuning systems, testing equipment, and learning the spaces inside and out.

We can’t wait to welcome you back.

A few campus partners will help us “kick the tires” with special or legacy events in 2021-22, and we are grateful for their participation.

Spaces you can request now

Requests for the Presidents’ Room and Commons are now being accepted. Please submit your request using the YSC Space Request Form (NetID login required). Due to the volume of inquiries, we ask that your request is submitted at least six weeks in advance of the proposed event.

Please be aware that requests are reviewed on a weekly basis. Those made before 4pm on Mondays are reviewed within the same week. Requests submitted after that time frame will be reviewed the following week. If you have questions, please contact us at

Spaces that will be available soon

The Underground, The Well, The Dome, Dance Studio, Galleries, and all other bookable spaces will be made available in the coming months. Please check back for updates.

If you are an undergraduate applying for a CPA award and interested in using one of these YSC spaces for your visual art or performance project, please visit the Creative and Performing Arts website for more information and the application form, which includes preferred venue requests. Please DO NOT submit separate requests to YSC if you are applying for a CPA award.
