Conferencing on Campus

Three venues open year-round to the public

UD Conference Services has been hosting meetings and events for local and national clients for more than 20 years. Gain credibility by just being here.

Clayton Conference Center


Well-known in Newark, Clayton Conference Center is one of the largest Delaware venues on one of the oldest university campuses in the nation. Time-tested with a 90% client return rate, our experience, professionalism, and consistency can’t be beaten.

Another successful multi-day meeting in the books.

“Everyone at Clayton [Conference Center] was so nice, friendly, and very helpful – they went over and above making everyone feel so welcome and just had the event running so smooth – every day! The food and snacks were wonderful too.

Thank you everyone for everything you did in helping to make this event a success.”

The Audion & Atrium


The most popular meeting space in Newark, this recent addition to the UD Campus is a forward-thinking space designed for power meetings and productivity on a whole new level.

Excellence in service is a win.

“Thank you so much for the superb service you and all of your people provided for the ASEE Academic Leadership Seminar today. Every person, (including the AV guy, to the food service, plus copy helper, and yourself) was so very customer oriented and we couldn’t have been happier with the service. Thank you so very much!!”

The Virden Retreat Center


Located in Lewes, our coastal venue has long been a favorite for business and social events that take advantage of our expansive grounds, on-site accommodations, and immersion in the coastal vibe.

Professionalism. Works Every time.

“I want to sincerely thank the Virden Center staff for doing such an excellent job hosting our event. Every single person I interacted with was a consummate professional and followed through on details and anticipated unexpected things so well. The food, the site, the service and everything else was just fantastic! Our event was a great success (in my opinion) and I look forward to planning another next year with you. Thank you.”
