We have indoor and outdoor locations that can be reserved for your event. Additionally, we offer catering and meal options through Sodexo, our campus dining partner.
Here are some of the spaces that can be reserved for your wedding.
Quad: A popular favorite for wedding ceremonies, the tree-lined quad is located in the center of campus and is host to a variety of events throughout the year. With the maximum capacity of 500, the quad is a flexible venue that can be set-up to best fit your needs. The grassy-area is perfect for open-air concerts, fairs and outdoor receptions. Electrical support is available.
Sunken Gardens*: Another favorite venue for intimate ceremonies, this beautifully landscaped and serene place is perfect for relaxing in the sun or in the shade of one or two gazebos. This 75 person capacity venue, is an ideal location for smaller outdoor events and weddings under good weather conditions.
Red Barn Park: A little away from the Quad and Sunken Gardens, Red Barn Park is home to many of the outdoor concerts because of its relaxing atmosphere. The walking bridge and surrounding trees form the perfect setting for an outdoor wedding. This location, which can accomodate upto 200 people, is great for those who like to get creative, because there are a number of ways to hold an event with the space.
Georgian Rooms: Each of the Georgian Rooms can be combined into one large room or split into three smaller rooms. As a combo room, it can be easily set for an elegant banquet dinner for 300 or a lecture for 400. The Georgian Rooms each have a built-in projector screen and sound system, which makes them ideal for A/V presentations. The combined rooms are great for wedding receptions, guest lecturers, banquet dinners and other large scale events.
Down Under: The Down Under is a distinctive space that offers many options. A built-in stage and technology booth that includes both special lighting and sound capabilities is available. A member of the building staff can be requested to run the lights and sound to help your event run smoothly. This multi-function room has hosted dances, small theatre perfomances, lectures and weddings.
Alumni: The Alumni Room is an elegant room that is often used for small meetings or lectures. It also has built-in technology for presentations or lectures. Small weddings and banquets have been held in this room as well.
