Chancellor Green Rotunda
Chancellor Green, originally the university's main library, has been restored to its historic use as a quiet study space for the humanities. As the core of the Andlinger Humanities Center, this space is meant to enhance the intellectual life of the humanities in ways that are consonant with its mission and with the guidelines below.
The mezzanine provides 28 carrels where students, faculty, visiting fellows, emeritus faculty members, and others can work. Locked cabinets are provided to the authorized user(s) upon request. Vacant carrels are available for anyone to use. To reserve a cabinet space, please contact Cynthia Murphy in the office of the Vice Provost for Space Programming and Planning.
The Rotunda serves as a common room where faculty and students can engage in quiet discussion or study. Given the presence of study space in the mezzanine, the Rotunda and seminar rooms are unsuited for personal social events. Departments may serve simple refreshments (wine and cheese, for example) after a lecture, but for more elaborate receptions, the upper and lower hyphens and the café, with food and beverage service and an adjoining indoor gallery and outdoor terrace, will usually be more appropriate.
By special request and on a limited basis, the Rotunda may be used for University receptions or dinners. Normally these will be approved only on weekends or during university vacations when they do not interfere with teaching and studying. Given this academic focus, the Andlinger Center, including the Chancellor Green Rotunda, is not available for events of a personal nature, such as weddings, rehearsals, bar mitzvahs, etc.
There is a fee of $250 for events that require moving existing furniture, installing tables or serving meals. Event organizers are required to pay the cost and overtime of professional movers to remove, store and return the furniture in time for the next day. This fee is used to restore damaged furniture that is caused by the moving and storage.
Chancellor Green Upper Hyphen
The Upper Hyphen, connecting East Pyne and Chancellor Green acts as the main thoroughfare to the Rotunda, Chancellor Green 103, and 105. While serving as a lounge area and a space for more elaborate events such as gatherings and open house functions. It renders a modest space able to accommodate a variety of layouts. The Upper Hyphen is ideal for use when Rooms 103 and 105 are not occupied by academic courses. For events requiring the lounge furniture to be removed, University Scheduling will contract with furniture movers as needed. Costs associated with removal, storage and restoration of the space to original condition will be the responsibility of the event sponsor.
Chancellor Green Lower Hyphen
The Lower Hyphen, adjacent to the Chancellor Green Café, is a gallery space typically used as a lounging area. It is also suitable for functions such as receptions. The client is responsible for the cost of installation, removal, and for ensuring that the space is restored to its original condition. For events requiring the lounge furniture to be removed, University Scheduling will contract with furniture movers as needed. Costs associated with removal, storage and restoration of the space to original condition will be the responsibility of the event sponsor.
Chancellor Green Café
The Chancellor Green Café is a dining location managed by Princeton Dining Services. When it is not open for business, the space can be reserved for functions.
