          One-day events and conferences

          Weddings, anniversaries and prom services

          Frank G. Pogue Student Center and Van Houten Dining Hall are wonderful venues for wedding receptions, anniversary receptions, or formal dances.  In addition, the Gazebo by the lake is a beautiful outdoor location that can be reserved for ceremonies. Chartwells, our on-campus food service provider, will help customize your menu and assist with making your day special and unique.

          Summer camps and overnight conferences

          Are you planning a multi-day conference or camp next summer? Edinboro University is located just south of Erie in Northwestern Pennsylvania, and is centrally located between Pittsburgh, Cleveland, or Buffalo. Groups of all sizes are welcome, and we’d be happy to help with your upcoming events!

          Booking, fees and insurance requirements

          If your organization is interested in requesting facilities and support services for an event at Edinboro University, please contact the Conference Services Office.  If facilities, equipment and support services are available on the date(s) you request, we will issue a Facilities Use Agreement (FUA) outlining the agreement that must be signed by both parties prior to the event date.

          Please note the state mandates that groups provide, in advance of any use, a copy of a certificate of insurance covering property damage liability and bodily injury of no less than one million dollars ($1,000,000) per incident, as well as worker’s compensation insurance sufficient to cover all employees of the organization (if applicable). The University must be named as an additionally-insured on this policy.

          A deposit of 25 percent of estimated university costs must be submitted with your signed contracts to reserve facilities/services. The deposit will be deducted from your final invoice at the conclusion of your event.

          Protection of minors

          When programs are serving children ages 18 years of age or younger, the University follows the University Protection of Minors Policy Handbook (University Policy D053). The information regarding clearance requirements and other protection of minors material can also be found in the Facilities Use Agreement that is signed by both parties prior to an external organization’s arrival to campus.
