Midtown Coffeehouse

Last updated: January 19, 2018

The Colonial Corner, Thursday nights, 8pm

  • Are you tired of spending your evenings alone in your room?

  • Are you looking to meet new people, listen to music or play a few games? 

  • Do you enjoy going to concerts and  like free events with free food?

  • Are you interested in sharing your talents or enjoy watching others perform during open mic?

If you answered 'yes' to any of the questions above, then the Midtown Coffeehouse is the place for you. Coffeehouse is every Thursday night from 8-10pm in the Colonial Corner (formerly downstairs snack bar, SC).

This week's Coffeehouse is sponsored by PAC and
 will feature:

Shane & Emily

They describe themselves as a pop/acoustic/folk duo who incorporate many different elements of diverse genres into their original music. They give off a positive, energetic vibe but they don't shy away from diving into the darker emotions that inspire their music. Please come out and welcome them to WCSU's Coffeehouse!

We hope to see you Thursday at 8pm in the Colonial Corner.

As always, there will be complimentary sandwiches, cookies, water, and of course COFFEE!

Donations are accepted.

    If you would like to attend this event and need special accessibility accommodations,   
            please call 203-837-9700 to make arrangements.

 Spring 2018 Schedule coming soon!

The Midtown Coffeehouse was established in the fall of 2005 and has run continuously throughout the fall and spring semesters ever since.  Thus it has become an event students can count on for their Thursday night entertainment - an hour of open mic followed by a featured performer or a themed evening of entertainment.  Lately a number of table games have been added to the line-up of free food, sodas, and coffee so that students have a chance to socialize while listening to the performances.

Colonial Corner 

The Midtown Coffeehouse briefly moved into the Danbury Room in the Midtown Student Center and then permanently relocated to the Colonial Corner, also in the Midtown Student Center, after its former home, Alumni Hall, was dedicated as the new Irfan Kathwari Honors House in 2015.
