  • (10) 20 person classrooms
  • 120 seat auditorium

McCosh Hall

McCosh Hall offers two of our largest classrooms making it a great space for lectures. It's Collegiate Gothic architecture also makes it our most "quintessentially Princeton" building. If you are looking to hold your event in McCosh please take into account two very crucial details. First, there is no multi purpose space meaning it is difficult, if not impossible, to set up a registration table or coffee break. Second, the main bathrooms are located in the basement and have limited capacity compared to the capacity of the classrooms.

  • 465 Seat Auditorium (McCosh 50)
  • 350 Seat Auditorium (McCosh 10)
  • (2) 140 Seat Auditoriums (McCosh 28 and 46)
