Conference Center 

Alverno's Conference Center is uniquely designed. An elegant, two-story glass-enclosed rotunda with a brilliantly colored terrazzo floor serves as its entryway.

The 5,100 square-foot carpeted Center holds up to 300 banquet style and 400 in theatre style seating. It can be divided into four separate rooms for those smaller or more intimate events. You choose the ambiance.


Located in the Liberal Arts building and conveniently located near parking, this 4,430 sq. ft. room is spacious and inviting. The outdoor courtyard and lobby entrance creates an intimate atmosphere for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres as a cordial prelude to your special event. The Commons comfortably seats up to 120 people for receptions.

Meeting Rooms

Alverno's classrooms and meeting room spaces can accomodate anywhere from 6-100 people.  If your large conference needs smaller breakout rooms, we will work with you to design the best room set-up and provide audiovidual equipment and catering services in each room. The majority of rooms are equipped with rectangular tables and chairs.


Overlooking Reiman Plaza, the second floor of our elegant, two-story glass-enclosed rotunda serves as an attractive location for cocktail receptions, rehearsal dinners or small cocktail receptions for 30-50 people.


The chapel is available for faith based weddings of alumnae, current degree students and Alverno employees.  Wedding ceremonies on campus are held in the Chapel. Location exceptions may be made due to the religious tradition(s) of the couple.
