Most any gathering or event held in the South Coast region of Massachusetts has the potential for being a real treat.  There's so much to see and do in the area, which is so full of natural sylvan beauty that it simply exudes charm!  But where to have it, what venue?  Of course, you want it to be something extraordinary, memorable.  The University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth is in the middle of it all, at the heart of miles of beach, a couple state parks, the Historic Whaling Museum, and Battleship Cove.  A ride on the high-speed ferry will take you out to Martha's Vineyard as well.  If you're interested in another style, a short drive will find you in Boston (50 miles,) Cape Cod, Newport or Providence (30 miles,) Rhode Island (30 miles.)

The conference facilities are atypical.  One of the first things visitors notice is that the campus architecture is unusual.  Concepts of geometric symmetry are taken nearly to their logical extreme in forming the buildings.  On top of the usual classroom and lecture presentation environments, U of Mass, Dartmouth also offers conferences the opportunity to utilize less conventional spaces, nooks and alcoves and courtyards that are often seen as public or off-limits at other venues.  In all, some 80 areas are made available all year long.  Like most East Coast university meeting venues, overnight housing is only available during the summer months, from June through August.  Twenty-two hundred can sleep on campus in a combination of residence hall quarters, and apartment-style suites during those summer months. During the school year, the largest group would be 800, which is the capacity of their largest theatre-style environment. Internet connections are available in conventional spaces.  Teleconferencing and videoconferencing facilities are also at your disposal, as are computer labs.  From a technological standpoint, the U of Mass, Dartmouth is pretty much state-of-the-art.  Of course, the sound systems in the theatres are state-of-the-art as well.  Just about anything you might ask — any media or presentation format — for can be made available for your event.

Group dining facilities are found in the residence halls, as well as the Commuter Cafeteria near the Main Quad, by the Main Auditorium.  Additionally, the Faculty Dining Room, a more intimate and flexible table & chair space, and the Sky Ranch Grill and Garden Toss, as well as the Birch, Maple Ridge and Oak Glen Grills, are pleased to accommodate a more personal approach to meals.

It's easy to see that the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth provides an extraordinary choice making in on of the top East Coast conference center facilities.
