Yale Center for Teaching and Learning

Request to Host your Meeting or Event in the Poorvu Center

Thank you for your interest in using the space at the Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning. All requests to use the Poorvu Center for meetings and other non-course related activities are based on availability of the rooms and other activities planned at the Poorvu Center that week. We will consider all requests for the use of the Poorvu Center, however, meetings that include elements of teaching and learning will receive strong priority.

~Summer 2022 Requests: The Poorvu Center will only consider requests from approved Yale community members at this time. All requestors need to ensure that each person in the space at any given time has authorization to be on campus. Prior to any reservation, please work with the appropriate business operations office to obtain authorization and adhere to all of the requirements on campus. Room capacities listed in our forms have not been reduced for proper social distancing, please keep this in mind when reserving a space.

A Yale ID is required for all attendees, masks must still be worn at all times and no food or beverages are allowed.

To learn more about the spaces we have available for use, please click here. Please note that our smaller rooms (Rooms 116A – D) are for Poorvu Center staff and fellows use only.

If you are interested in using our space for teaching a course, please use this form instead. If you are interested in using the TEAL Classroom at 17 Hillhouse for your meeting or event, please make your request through 25Live.

Please note that you are expected to bring your own technological equipment when utilizing the Poorvu Center rooms (e.g. Mac laptop adaptors, presentation advancers/clickers, power adapters).

Please provide at least four business days, for review of your request
