Twenty minutes south of Ottawa, about the same from the New York State border, lies the beautiful University of Guelph's Kemptville Campus. Founded in 1917, this venerable agricultural science college is nestled atop 1200 acres of breathtakingly beautiful campus. Such a convenient location combines with this picturesque country setting to make an ideal and unique venue for meetings, conferences, sports competitions, seminars, workshops — ceremonies and events of any kind!
Getting to the campus is easy. Just fly in to the Ottawa International airport and enjoy a 25 minute drive through the beautiful countryside. Locals will find it's just 15 miles from Ogdensburg, 30 miles from Brockville!
Kemptville Campus is able to offer your group meeting space throughout the year. Overnight stays (for up to 440 attendees) are only possible during May, June, July and August, as the students are in the dorms the rest of the year. If your group requires accommodations during the school year, there are local hotels in the area. Either way, you and up to 600 of your guests are sure to be delighted by the around-the-clock service Kemptville is able to offer.
There are 25 classroom style meeting places, and a theatre that seats up to 500 total people. The campus enjoys state-of-the-arts audio and video capabilities. You'll find high speed Internet in all meeting and guest rooms. Each of the 25 meeting rooms has a multi-media projector. The campus can provide teleconferencing and video conferencing as well. There are two computer labs for classroom or guests' personal use. Topping the suite off is a full-service business center, to ensure that your party wants for nothing during your stay.
Dining can be formal or informal, and full-service is provided either way. There is a very reasonable rate per person for three hot meals per day. Custom catering is also available, at very reasonable rates!
With so many features and options, every modern convenience and technology at your disposal, it's hard to imagine wanting anything more than the wonderful facilities offered by the University of Guelph's Kemptville Campus. The location makes for an especially good choice for events that will bring attendees from both the U.S. and Canadian sides nearest Ottawa.
