The Asian American Activities Center is a department of Stanford University with a large variety of resources to serve the needs of the Stanford community. The physical space of the A³C includes offices for the professional staff, a lounge which serves as the primary meeting space for Asian American student groups, an expanded ballroom, spacious Couchroom, conference room, and computer cluster that are open to all students. The center also houses an Asian American resource library with reference texts, literature, hard-to-find Asian periodicals, university documents, newspaper clippings, and videos often utilized for coursework research. Only registered Voluntary Student Organizations may reserve space for onetime events or weekly meeting reservations.
Facilities for Reservation
The Asian American Activities Center has the following rooms available for reservation by registered Voluntary Student Organizations (VSOs). Priority is given to groups that affiliate themselves with the Asian American Activities Center by attending the quarterly API Leadership Retreats and also are active subscribers to email@example.com. Groups using the facilities must be registered as a student organization with the Student Activities and Leadership (SAL) office. Each group can have up to 2 hours of reserved space per week in either the couchroom, conference room, or ballroom. One-time events are not included into this 2 hour period.
The A3C Ballroom provides performance groups with an ideal rehearsal space. The Ballroom has a smooth hardwood floor, a small stage, and chairs.
During the day and on weekends (Monday-Thursday 8AM-5PM, Friday-Sunday 8AM-2AM), Ballroom reservations are administered by Tresidder Meeting Services.
PLEASE NOTE! Given that the Ballroom is in such high demand, most reservation hours during the week are booked at the beginning of the year with priority given to building tenants.
Availability: Monday-Thursday from 6PM-12 Midnight
The A³C Couchroom
Directly above the Ballroom, the A³C Couchroom houses comfortable couches that serve as seating for meetings, events, and working students. The A³C Couchroom is a favorite place for students to come in and rest, chat, hang out, and do homework. With large, comfortable couches, many Asian American student organizations hold events and meetings in the A³C Couchroom.
For those student groups looking for a movie or karaoke night, the Couchroom also has a TV and DVD Player for use.
The couchroom includes a small side room with a wall-length whiteboard, large conference table, and chairs that can be sectioned off by a divider.
Availability: Monday-Friday 6PM-12 Midnight, Saturday-Sunday 8AM-12 Midnight
The A³C Conference Room
The Conference Room is conveniently located on the first floor of the Clubhouse, adjacent to the main entrance and on the right side of the elevator (this is NOT the Cardinal Room, which is directly adjacent to the Ballroom). It is fitted with comfortable chairs and a long conference table. This room is used primarily for meetings and group discussions.
Availability: Monday-Friday 10AM-12 Midnight
