Room Request Form

WHC event spaces may be reserved only by Yale-affiliated programs and organizations.  

There is no charge for events held at the Center, and all Whitney cosponsored events are free and open to the public.

People interested in reserving WHC spaces should use this form and consult our policy page for important information and policies. Those requesting a room for a film screening, please also complete the Projectionist Request Form. Screening organizers are responsible for projection fees and securing public performance rights.
