The Center for Computing & Data Sciences offers a number of meeting and event spaces. The most dynamic event space is on the 17th floor of the Center for Computing & Data Sciences building in the heart of Boston University’s campus. With sweeping views of the city as your backdrop, host a conference, lecture, workshop, or reception!
The 17th Floor offers seminar and conference spaces intended to primarily support programs and events in areas of computing and data sciences. It is also a dynamic space to hold high-profile University-level events, and bring people together. From its dramatic exterior space to open interior spaces that encourage collaboration, the CDS 17th floor defies both conventions and limits.
Availability and reservation requests can all be done through searching for "CDS 1750" in 25Live. We ask that general reservation requests not be submitted more than 6 months in advance.
All events held in CDS 1750 require a Facilities Service Request (FSR) for Event Setup/Clean Up. Requestors are responsible for submitting FSRs prior to the event. See below for more details on completing an FSR.
