Take Advantage of the Off-Season at The Virden Center.

Summer may be winding down, but the school year is amping up. Get your team focused with departmental retreats, team-building workshops, and association events.

We’re heading into the off-season, and that means less crowds yet still plenty of time to enjoy being down by the shore. Book your meeting or event – for a day or a weekend.


Everything You Need
Guests have everything they need in one place for multi-day meetings – including on-site guestrooms.


How About Both
Along with a tented patio for outdoor dining, Virden has ample open grounds surrounded by natural wetlands – the right mix for breaks, activities, and relaxing.


Ensuring Your Success
Our personal planners help you to get the most out of your time here – from registration to catering to event prep.

The Virden Center.
One of the UD Community’s best perks.


The Virden Center has flexible meeting rooms, a spacious lounge, indoor and outdoor dining, and 23 guestrooms, and expansive open grounds.

Guestrooms are divided between two lodges and offer two room configurations: a queen and twin or two twins. Each guestroom has a private entrance, a private bath, and a private screened-in porch – many overlooking the surrounding wetlands. Other creature comforts include linens, toiletries, coffee makers, TVs, WiFi, plus mini-refrigerators and microwaves in select rooms. 

Now is a great time to plan your next meeting or event.
