Schwarzman Center

The recently-renovated Schwarzman Center is transformational for Yale by providing, for the first time, an intersection of student life and the arts at the historic heart of campus.

Our beloved Commons highlights destination dining concepts – an array of options from around the globe including made in-house pasta, rotisserie, wok-fired, and plant-centric entrees. In The Underground (lower level), explore the all-day café options at Elm, convenient grab and go meals at The Bow Wow, and late-night eats and sips at Ivy and The Well.
