The Princeton Entrepreneurial Hub at 34 Chambers Street in downtown Princeton, which opened in fall 2015, serves as a hub for entrepreneurship education and a startup incubator with co-working space for students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Providing a home to a variety of educational events, including workshops, seminars, and visits by University alumni and mentors, the Hub features event rooms, shared working space, and private offices.
The Hub is designed to encourage the exchange of ideas. Collaborations and connections among University faculty, students, alumni and local entrepreneurs are important to the University's commitment to serve the common good. The Hub's doors are open to local community members and alumni who are interested in advising or mentoring students and student teams, holding office hours, and attending public lectures and events. The Princeton Entrepreneurship Council and the Keller Center's eLab Accelerator and Tiger Challenge programs are located in the Hub.

Guidelines For Community Use of Hub Space
Those looking to hold an event at the Entrepreneurial Hub should consider the following guidelines before contacting Hub staff:
- The event must have a clear focus on entrepreneurship or design thinking
- All space inquiries must be submitted via the online form
- The submission of this form does not guarantee a reservation
- Requesting parties are responsible for their own event logistics, including setup, catering, audio visual support, and cleanup
- Recurring events cannot be held at the Hub
- Review and approval of events could take up to six weeks, thus, last-minute requests are highly discouraged
- Both for-profit and not-for-profit (501c3) organizations seeking to engage with the University should note that events held at the Hub must be co-sponsored by an on-campus entity (from the early planning stages) and should be of benefit not only to the organization, but also to the Princeton University community.
The Hub is located outside Princeton's main campus, and is not served by Princeton Facilities/Building Services, Department of Public Safety, Media Services, or OIT. It is therefore imperative that parties holding an event at the Hub contract their own services. Further, at least one member of the Princeton University co-sponsoring party must be present at the event.
SUBMIT A REQUEST FOR SPACE
If you are interested in getting involved with University programming at the Hub or you are a Princeton faculty member or alum interested in office space, please contact Keller Center Program Manager Stephanie Landers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
