Conference Facilities

The main campus of Hope College features forty-five buildings. Meeting rooms range from informal gathering areas, sports facilities, and picnic grounds to quiet, private, air-conditioned conference rooms. Advanced audio-visual equipment and technical assistance are available as well. Whether a gathering of ten or a business conference for five hundred, Hope College is equipped to provide comfortable accommodations and a variety of meeting areas and services.

In addition, both the Dow Health and Physical Education Center, which provides recreation and instructional activities, and the DeWitt Tennis Center, featuring six indoor courts and locker room facilities, are open to our conference guests when available.


Lodging Facilities

A wide variety of accommodations are available for conference lodging and summer rental, ranging from good, old-fashioned residence halls to high-end apartments above the stores of downtown Holland. Handicap-accessable rooms and rooms with air-conditioning are also available. This large range of housing choices allows you to enjoy the convenience of staying minutes from your meeting site and the dining hall, or to explore the city of Holland, which was named one of America's Dozen Distinctive Destinations by the National Trust for Historic Preservation in 2002.


Dining Facilities

Meals are served in the college's large full service cafeteria or in special banquet facilities, depending on the needs and wishes of the group. A variety of residence halls and apartments, including handicapped accessible and air-conditioned facilities, are in close proximity to the meeting rooms and cafeteria.

Whether your group will be dining informally, cafeteria style, or having an up-scale, elegant dinner, Hope College Dining Services is able to meet all your dining needs. From special diets to special events, Hope College Dining Services has the experience and know-how to provide delicious, nutritious, and pleasing meals to any group, from sports camps to business conferences. Meals are provided in the college cafeteria, Phelps Hall, for day-to-day dining, and in the Maas Auditorium for banquets and special events.

Special banquet facilities are also available at the Haworth Inn and Conference Center, the hotel and conference center on Hope's campus. Should you be interested in or need the facilities at the Haworth Inn, the Director of Conference Services will be happy to assist you in contacting the correct people.
