was a center for contemporary art in Southeast Portland, Oregon. It was led by a desire to support artists, propose new modes of production, and stimulate the ongoing public discourse around art. This website serves as an archive of Yale Union’s programming from 2011 through 2021.

Yale Union acknowledges that it occupies the traditional lands of the Multnomah, Chinook, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Tualatin Kalapuya, Molalla, and other Indigenous peoples.


The Yale Union building is conveniently located in the center of Portland and may be rented for events or production purposes. To organize a tour or learn more about our rates, contact FACILITIES MANAGER. We rent our space for weddings, special events, holiday parties, tech expos, photo shoots, et cetera!

Rental fees directly support the programmatic mission and operational maintenance of Yale Union, and most importantly, the artists we work with. When you rent Yale Union for your private event, you are funding the cultural life of the Pacific Northwest.
