Conferences & Meetings

Morris Conference Center offers numerous meeting areas on the main floor for groups ranging from 10 to 125 participants.

The Craven Lounge, named for former College President Clifford Craven, is a large, flexible space appropriate for large group meetings and formal receptions.

Two medium-sized meeting rooms and two small meeting rooms are available on the same level as the Craven Lounge. 

As needed, our planning staff can help facilitate space reservations in other buildings on campus.

Refreshments can be arranged, from coffee service in your meeting room to full catered dinners in our dining facilities. Also, our very own campus’s Sodexo Catering Services can be provided. Ask for more information when you schedule your meeting space.

Internet access and a variety of audiovisual equipment are available. All areas of the Conference Center are smoke-free.  Our meeting rooms and dining facilities are handicap accessible.

Groups not affiliated with the college are required to obtain a permit and event insurance as part of the contract for using our facilities. Our planning staff will help walk you through this process.

Catering

Morris Conference Center features two full-service dining rooms for catered events in its lower level. These lovely rooms provide a classic setting for formal dinners, awards banquets, and receptions.

Our Otsego Grille seats up to 160 guests, while the adjacent Le Café seats 90.  These areas can be joined to accommodate a total of 250 guests. 

All catering is operated by Sodexo Campus Services. See the link for Community Catering at the bottom of the Sodexo page.

After booking your event space, the Morris Conference Center staff will put you in touch with the catering staff to select your menus and style of service.
