A Forum for Ideas and Focal Point of New Experiences

Civic Hall is a state-of-the-art institution anchoring Union Square in New York. It was founded with a simple idea: to connect us for life’s richest opportunities in growth, collaboration, and celebration.

Today, Civic Hall is driven by purpose – unlocking the power of possible in a forum as diverse as the city that it centers. From serving as the home to educational programs and startup companies, to hosting art shows and wedding receptions, no ambition is too bold.

Civic Hall is space that moves your mind.

Higher Purpose

Civic Hall’s mission is to foster innovation, education, and collaboration in New York City’s tech economy with a commitment to expanding opportunities for all. Located in the heart of the NYC tech community at Union Square, Civic Hall is a new, 65,000-square-foot learning and training center at the new state-of-the-art Zero Irving building.

In addition to serving as the nucleus for entrepreneurial and educational innovation, Civic Hall will facilitate groundbreaking partnerships among high-impact tenants and tech training partners to work collectively to meet the needs of all New Yorkers, especially those from communities too often left behind.
