About The Conference Center at Prairie State College

Located less than 30 miles from the Chicago’s Loop, in the heart of the Chicago Southland, the Conference Center at Prairie State College is easily accessible from I 80 and I 57 and has ample complimentary parking for your guests. The facility has served the educational, civic, business, and community event needs since 1996. Its meeting rooms and auditorium create an ideal venue for small to mid-sized meetings, conferences, stage performances and celebrations.  Our professional staff collaborates with each meeting planner to discuss pre-event logistical goals and provide support throughout the duration of the event.

The collegiate facility features include:
  • Beautiful Rotunda that serves as the hub of the facility and used for check-in tables, networking breaks, food service and post-event receptions.
  • The Barnes and Noble College auditorium with capacity of 486 includes an integrated sound system, oversized projection screen, raised stage and theater style seating with clear sight lines. 
  • Four meeting rooms offer flexible seating arrangements, LCD projectors, lap top computers, retractable screens and white boards. 
  • Spacious Atrium on the south end of campus commonly used for exhibitor expos and sit down meals.  A stage can be set up with a microphone as needed. 
Please note that due to safety concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, through the remainder of 2020, The Conference Center will consider room reservation inquiries for small meetings of 10 or less. Meeting dates for 2021 are available.
