Hansen Hall

Modern and flexible, Hansen Hall is a welcoming and flexible venue in the heart of the Swanston Street Welcome Zone. Adjacent to the Swanston Street foyer, and scheduled to open in spring 2019, it’s the Library’s most central and easily accessible venue. Welcome your guests with cocktails and canapés in Hansen Hall, before enjoying a formal dinner in Cowen Gallery or The Ian Potter Queen’s Hall, or an evening lecture in the Conversation Quarter.

Hansen Hall operates as a shared public space during Library hours, but is available for corporate events, cocktail parties or other functions upon request. The Hall provides direct access via lift to The Ian Potter Queen’s Hall.
