Review a large number of East Coast event facilities to find the perfect venue for your next meeting or social gathering.
Wagner College, in Staten Island, New York, has earned the right to be called “The Most Beautiful Campus in the Country.” This park-like campus overlooks the Atlantic, New York Harbor, and Manhattan, but from the quaint feel and sylvan majesty, you’d expect to be far away in upstate New York. Wagner College offers up this peaceful oasis to you and your guests, a very welcome change from the hustle and bustle of NYC. You’ll be out there in the woods, yet just a ferry ride away from Manhattan.
The tranquility of Wagner College is winning, but convenience makes it all the better. Being just 13 miles from New York City and only 25 minutes from Newark International Airport in New Jersey, it is definitely convenient! Guests can fly in from anywhere in the country and be there half an hour after they leave the airport!

The corporate banquet and meeting halls are available all year long. Like all schools of higher learning, Wagner’s first obligation is to the students, so housing is only available during non-academic months of the summer, from June through early August. People of all ages are welcome to stay at Harborview and Guild residence halls during that time. These two buildings provide communal bathroom facilities. The new residence facility, Foundation Hall, offers suites and apartment-style units, and is exclusively reserved for adults. In total, Wagner is prepared to provide lodgings for up to 450 overnight guests. Of course, off-campus lodging may be available, but is likely to be found at a much higher rate.
All told, Wagner College can greet 1600 guests at a time in their 39 meeting and event rooms. The largest theatre-style seating group is 375, while 155 can be accommodated in one large classroom. Theatre-style seating is appropriate for lectures and presentations, whereas classroom environments allow for integration and break-out groups.
Wagner’s AV department and equipment are leading-edge. Internet access is available in all event and meeting facilities. You’ll want to discuss your group’s requirements with the event coordinator.
Catering services include breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as beverages and snacks for breaks and special/custom catering. Comprehensive packages can be put together. They begin at $87 per day for food and lodgings. Wagner’s facilities are not available for private parties.
The location is idyllic, and closer than one could possibly have imagined! The services are top notch, and the rates are quite reasonable. What’s not to like? Give Wagner College a call to discuss your group’s needs and the availability of the conference facilities. You’ll be pleasantly pleased that you did!
