About

Join Gettysburg College's community of passionate achievers – on a campus where history and innovation intersect to shape the future.

Gettysburg College is located conveniently in the heart of historic Gettysburg, PA and is an exceptional location for hosting company retreats, conference programs, or meetings. The campus contains the historical and iconic setting that witnessed integral parts of our history, such as the Battle of Gettysburg and Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.

However, we are more than a Civil War college.

Gettysburg College boasts a full range of services that work to make planning an event at the venue both simple and affordable. Gettysburg College also provides all-inclusive services for your event, including meals and housing arrangements for visitors. With over 60 meeting facilities, open green spaces, intuitive technology and multimedia systems, the venue ensures it can prime any event planned at the venue for success.

While Gettysburg College is most well-known for its relevance to American history and its charm, the surrounding area is filled with things to keep visitors occupied. The venue is close to major shopping and restaurant areas in downtown Gettysburg, major transportation hubs, and not far from Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C. metro areas.
