Schwarzman Center

The newly-renovated Schwarzman Center will be transformational for Yale in providing, for the first time, a center for 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 with a spotlight on fresh, contemporary fare, including mediterranean, rotisserie, wok-fired, and plant-centric entrees. All-day cafe and late-night bar spaces on the lower level provide options day or night.
