and Events

90% of our clients return to UD for their next meeting or event. They say it’s our professionalism, consistency, and experience. We agree.


Meetings come in all shapes and sizes – and no two are alike. Small, large, multi-session or multi-day, we’re confident that any of our venues will fit your needs.

By definition, an event is important – and we take yours seriously. From Galas to Alumni reunions to Civil War Costume Parties, we’ve seen–and hosted–it all at each of our three campuses.

We have extensive experience with large and small events, including:

  • UD Alumni Weekend
  • Taste of Newark
  • Capital Campaigns
  • Celebration of Scholars
  • Inaugural Dinners
