The Robert L. McNeil, Jr., Lecture Hall is an ADA-accessible, 381-seat auditorium with a small, semi-circular stage. Featuring state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment, McNeil is ideal for lectures. The Yale University Registrar’s Office schedules the lecture hall between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm Monday through Thursday. Outside of that time period, the lecture hall may be rented by University-sponsored special events. Rental costs include use of the auditorium and support staff fees for security, facilities, and standard custodial services. Groups considering the use of the hall should first contact Liz Harnett at 203.432.0620 or to determine the availability of the hall for the date requested and the appropriateness of the proposed event.
