Mount Holyoke College offers a dramatic backdrop and idyllic location for your next event. The campus has been rated as one of the most beautiful by the Princeton Review. The facilities are rich in character yet house 21st century living accommodations and technology.  The Willits-Hallowell Conference Center & Hotel has 8,000 square feet of meeting space and 20 hotel rooms. The flexible Massachusetts meeting space exudes a feeling of warmth with its fireplaced living room and its large wall of windows overlooking the courtyard and waterfall. Each meeting room has it's own style taking you away from the "typical" meeting room. There is ample free parking, full media services, and delicious catering to complement your next Mount Holyoke College conference, meeting, or social event.

From June-August the Conference Office operation expands with over 1,000 beds in the residence halls, 45 classrooms, several auditoriums seating as many as 1,000, athletic fields, and computer labs. We host co-ed residential and day programs of all sizes, focuses, and age ranges.

Mount Holyoke College is conveniently located at the "crossroads of New England", 10 minutes to both the Mass Turnpike and Interstate 91. The campus location makes it ideal for guests coming from throughout the New England region by car and Bradley International Airport is just a 40 minute ride. Mount Holyoke College is unique because is offers the best of both worlds: meeting space in the summer months like most institutions but also year-round meeting space and overnight rooms in Massachusetts. Allow our Mount Holyoke College event professionals to coordinate all the necessities needed to make your outing a success.
