The Graduate Center for Worker Education is a resource for the Brooklyn College community and the working people of New York City.
The center’s facilities include two 30-seat electronic classrooms (which can be combined for a larger audience), two technologically enhanced seminar rooms (seating 16 and 8), a labor history library (seating 12), and a 20-station computer lab that is open to Brooklyn College students during the day. In addition, the center shares a 143-seat auditorium with the adjoining Center for Worker Education of City College.
If you are a member of the Brooklyn College Community—department, program, student group, etc.—and are interested in holding an event at the space, there is no charge to use the facility, though you must cover any additional costs (catering, etc.). Those not directly affiliated with Brooklyn College can also use the space, but at a nominal fee.
