Conference & Event Services


Conference & Event Services (C&E) offers a variety of planning and coordination services to make your event a success. We are able to assist with events large and small, both on and off campus. We work on everything from academic conferences and research symposia to professional development workshops and performing arts festivals. We are a cost-recovery unit, so there is a fee for our services.

Wide open spaces, plentiful windows, and comfortable, movable furniture maximize the potential for collaboration indoors, while tree-lined sidewalks and green spaces wrap around our three unique terraces outdoors. Put them together, and the result is a breathtaking campus presence embodying endless potential.
