Use Areas & Availability

Public use areas of Y-12’s New Hope Center include the auditorium, lobby, business support services area, the Y‑12 History Center, luncheon area, and tiered courtyard. Authorization to conduct an event in public areas of NHC does not include permission to access the entire facility.

The lobby can be used undependently or as an extension of the auditorium. The open, tiered courtyard, accessible from the lobby, also can be used. Y‑12 may define the specific area of use, and may limit the public use to certain areas, on a case-by-case basis.

Availability of public use areas in NHC is limited to after Y‑12’s normal operating hours (i.e., after 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday) and Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. A public event to be held during normal operating hours is at the discretion of the CNS Y‑12 Communications and Public Affairs Director or designee.

For that manager’s contact information, please see Communications and Public Affairs.
