Few Words about Cotsen Hall

Cotsen Hall, which was inaugurated in 2005 and named after its benefactor who was a great Philhellene and School Trustee, Lloyd Cotsen, serves as the main cultural center and embodies the mission of the American School of Classical Studies. The Hall is a landmarked building designed in modern style in the center of Athens. It is located just 5 minutes away, on foot, from the Evangelismos station and ten minutes from the underground parking of the War Museum, Cotsen Hall is literally located in the heart of Athens. It is fully equipped for a wide range of events including lectures, conferences and symposia, to chamber music concerts and theatre performances, and has been recognized as one of the best venues in Athens. Cotsen Hall permits the American School of Classical Studies to build on its outreach to the international community through its seminars, lectures, concerts, and other special programming, most of which are live-streamed by our production team, to the public throughout the world. Cotsen Hall has an overall capacity of 377 seats in order to accomodate the needs of all cultural and educational programs of the School and also welcomes events organized by distinguished groups and individuals from the world of education, culture, and business. Cotsen Hall also has a two-level lobby that is provided for indoor breaks and reception space for gatherings of up to 200 people. For larger gatherings during most months of the year, the Hall Terrace is available alone or in combination with two additional garden terraces.
