Hope College is a selective, liberal-arts college with a grounding in the Christian faith. Its stellar academic program is matched by a beautiful campus and buildings, which support students and Michigan conferences. From a new Music Building (2015) and Student Center (2017) to a stunning church over 100 years old and a range of historic and modern buildings, we have space for all kinds of gatherings. Our fieldhouse houses 3,000 fans for national championship basketball and volleyball during the school year and lunch with the Governor for over 1,000 VIP guests in the summer.

Located adjacent downtown Holland, you can conveniently walk to discover 120 unique shops and restaurants. Sandy beaches and beautiful parks on Lake Michigan are nearby, as well. Thanks to the Haworth Inn & Conference Center, a 50-room hotel, we can host Michigan conferences, banquets and events all year long.

Testimonials

  • We loved having our service at Dimnent! The chapel added a wonderful atmosphere and brought back certain memories for Christen and I. Our friends and family thought it was a beautiful location. They loved the simplicity of walking to Haworth from the chapel and they raved about the food. Thanks!
    Tony and Christen Bordenkircher

  • We discovered a gold mine in Hope College as the site for our church conference of 160 delegates. From the planning stages through the week on campus, the staff who worked with us were outstanding in their helpfulness and willingness to provide for our needs. Attendees suggested returning to Hope annually!
    Marjory Leas, Convention Planning Committee, Swedenborgian Church

  • The Challenge of Children Coalition has been using Hope College as the venue for our parenting conference for many years, and we have always been pleased with the outcome. The conference planning staff is always informative and very easy to work with. The facilities are in wonderful condition with updated technology available to support the latest innovations used by our presenters. On our participant evaluations we always receive wonderful comments about the food, with an emphasis on how much everyone loves the large selection that is offered. We look forward to having many more years of first class experiences with Hope College and their friendly and competent staff.
    Pam Land, Challenge of Children

  • Our organization has always enjoyed holding our functions at Hope College. Our organization has always enjoyed holding our functions at Hope College. The staff at the Hope College Conference Center was extremely helpful when we had our biennial conference there in June. The Hope facility is easy to locate and get around and being so close to downtown Holland was an added bonus.
    Karen Krause, Past President- Michigan League of Handweavers

  • After 15 years of running camp at Hope College we find the facilities and personnel to be excellent. The staff is organized and assistive in all aspects of facility use from the planning and contracting stages to the arrival on campus. Once the camp begins, the staff of Hope Conference services are cordial and helpful in every detail. We believe we could not find a better venue for running our camps.
    Coach Steve Smith- Hope College Men's Soccer Coach

  • We enjoy large, airy studios with good floors, lighting, ballet barres and mirrors. While students experience dorm life, our guest faculty is housed in apartments with laundry and kitchen facilities. The food is good, healthy and plentiful. We love our experience and wouldnt think of going anywhere else.
