University of Guelph Kemptville Campus





Is your group reviewing top Ontario, Canada meeting & event facilities for your next conference, meeting, or company function? Nearly equidistant from Ottawa and the New York State border (a mere 20 minutes to either of them,) lies The University of Guelph's Kemptville Campus. This venerable school was set in service in 1917, built upon 1200 acres of lushly forested land. The Agricultural and Forestry campus cradles the school's buildings, nestling meeting and residence facilities for 440 overnight guests and 600 attendees. The location itself is ideal. The rates are an unbelievable bargain, state of the art technology abounds, and one wants for nothing while visiting this charming red-brick campus.

Sports facilities include lighted side-by-side outdoor tennis and basketball courts. The theatre seating is unusually comfortable. The environment is just informal enough to be comfortable. That said, the campus staff knows how to put on the Ritz for a more formal catered event, upon request. Audio-visual facilities include high-speed Internet in all meeting and guest rooms, multi-media projectors in all meeting rooms, tele-video conferencing abilities, a pair of computer labs, and a full-service business center. The meeting rooms are available all year long. Overnight guests are welcomed between the first of May and the last day of August. During that time, there is 24-hour access to the campus and a 24-hour service desk available. Some of the sleeping quarters are apartment-style, while the rest are found within comfortable residence halls.

In all, there are 25 meeting and event rooms. The largest theatre-style seating environment welcomes up to 500 of your guests! All year long, the campus is happy to be involved in programs for youth from pre-school age through 8th grade, with attractions like the Ag-Venture Tours, Workshops with Attitude program, and Camp Coyote. The school offers a tour of the campus from a wagon pulled by a tractor, showing its quaint Ag-Forestry roots. Near to Ottawa, and yet within a decidedly rural environment, the campus makes a superb getaway, an opportunity for you and your guests to shed the tension and formalities of the city, relax and get down to business.

Catering services can be as simple as a snack platter or buffet service, or as formal as you wish. All-inclusive packages including overnight accommodations and three meals a day are available at prices you'll be shocked and pleased to see! That it is easy on the budget only makes the Kemptville Campus facilities all the more enticing!

Treat yourself and your guests to a slice of the country life at this quaint and very capable university campus. At once embracing the traditions of farming, dairy cattle and horses while teaching programs which focus on sustainable and environmentally safe crop management, the school demonstrates the best of all worlds. That wisdom and the pragmatic perspective come through in most everything you'll see and do while visiting the Ontario Agricultural College. Celebrating a biologically sustainable future makes it easy for any group to support such a place. They tend to think and act both locally and globally. Perhaps that's how this small-town school maintains an underlying sense of metropolitan savoir-faire.

What's certain is that your group will find this quaint and unassuming campus wins you over quickly, and allows for fond memories and bonds to be formed easily. Give them a call today. In these tough economic times, it's a pleasant change of pace to find such friendly rates. Then again, the Kemptville Campus is a friendly kind of place. In today's world, that's unique in and of itself!
