We're opening!
It's the moment we've been waiting for! Just over two years after closing our doors due to COVID-19, the Conference and Event Services team at Georgian College is excited to announce we will be accepting external groups back on campus starting May 1. We're happy to be getting back in our buildings and back to the events we love and miss so much.

We're passionate about events at Georgian because we're passionate about our students and their education. Remember, by hosting your event at Georgian, you are contributing directly to the student experience. Classroom rentals contribute to maintenance and technology upgrades. Working with our catering team provides our students not only current jobs but future jobs, helping them hone their customer service, time management, and collaboration skills. Every department involved in the planning and execution of your event helps our students reach their goals at Georgian.

If you're looking for a spot to host your next conference, meeting, retreat, or camp, don't hesitate to get in touch and find out how our team can help plan your next event. We can't wait to see you on campus!
