About

About University of Delaware Conference and Event Services

The University of Delaware has meeting and event venues located in both Newark and Lewes Delaware – the heart of the Mid-Atlantic region. Our flexible meeting spaces, access to campus amenities, on-site hotel, and proximity to major arteries make us an ideal choice for planners looking for a variety of options for multi-day meetings and events.

In Newark, the Clayton Conference Center offers clean, modern, flexible spaces. The open lobby is the nucleus of the venue where it is surrounded by a 7,000 sq. ft. ballroom, theater-style auditorium, and private meeting rooms - making it easy to move about the venue quickly and efficiently.

Planners intrigued by innovative building design and modern tech space will be impressed with Delaware’s premier venue – UD’s Tower Audion & Atrium. Take advantage of a combination of spaces that offers state-of-the-art audiovisual and streaming resources and, with a living wall, is a stunning venue for innovative design conferences, incubator sessions, start-up venture capital sprints, hybrid events, lectures, presentations, receptions, and dinners.

The Virden Center in Lewes is a self-contained campus nestled in the natural surroundings of a historic coastal town. The atmosphere is easy and relaxed. With six meeting rooms, overnight lodging, and indoor/outdoor dining options, the Virden Center is perfect for multi-day retreats, workshops, small meetings, social events, and celebrations that are enhanced by the recreation options at the beach.
