Conferences & Events

Our campus offers a unique guest experience because of its distinct location in downtown Raleigh. 

We’re just steps away from restaurants, bars, historical sites, parks, and much more.

Classrooms, meeting spaces, athletic facilities and the dining hall are available year-round. Conferences reside in campus residence halls during our summer months, mid-May through late July.
