About

About University of Delaware Conference and Event Services

The University of Delaware’s event space is located in both Newark and Lewes Delaware. The Newark venue is in a scenic and secluded, wooded environment that is in close proximity to Brandywine Valley attractions. The Lewes venue is more south and nestled in the natural surroundings of an historic coastal town. In Newark, the Clayton Conference Center offers clean, modern and flexible spaces suitable for a wide variety of events. The 7,000 sq. ft. ballroom is great for larger engagements, and the event space has a beautiful theatre-style auditorium, private meeting rooms, and a striking lobby with an open design. Those interested in an innovative building design with modern tech space for their event will be impressed with UD’s other Newark venue – The Tower Audion & Atrium. This premiere Delaware venue is a combination of spaces that offers state-of-the art audiovisual resources and is perfect for hosting lectures, presentations, receptions, and dinners. In Lewes, the Virden Center has an easy, open layout that is perfect for retreats, parties, weddings, and small meetings. View below for more information on the great venues the the University of Delaware has to offer.
