  • Overview
Conference Services at Humboldt State University offers comfortable accommodations in an extraordinary setting. HSU is nestled on California's Redwood Coast, surrounded by miles of beaches, forests, and rivers. Situated on the northern edge of the campus, the Conference Center is bordered to the east by Redwood Park and within walking distance of downtown Arcata. On-campus we have traditional housing, apartments and suites available for your overnight guests. We have many Arcata meeting and event spaces available on campus for both large and small groups, formal meetings, and recreational activities. Classrooms, meeting rooms, a theatre, and banquet rooms are all available depending on your conference needs.

We're a part of the Humboldt States Housing & Residence Life Department and work closely with HSU Dining and Catering Services to provide conference guests with the most rewarding and memorable campus experience possible. We look forward to hosting your group on campus next summer!  View some of the many incredible amenities below to see what makes Humboldt State University the premier Arcata, California event venue.
