Bethel University's facilities are frequently rented for youth programs, conferences, exhibits, religious meetings, concerts, educational sessions, sports camps, celebrations, and business meetings. All rental client organizations and their events must align with the values and mission of Bethel University. Bethel University reserves the right to cancel any program, performance, event, or promotion that violates the standards of Bethel University or is otherwise scandalous, indecent, or antithetical to Bethel's values or mission as determined by Bethel University in its sole discretion.
Great Hall, meeting spaces, and dining services are available
year-round. Campus housing is available from early June through the
beginning of August.
Our affordable rates make us one of the most popular destinations for conferences in the Midwest. We will be happy to provide you with a complete estimate that includes facility rental, service charges, and catering charges. Most conference programs with on-campus housing cost less than $50 per person per day for three meals, facility rental, and support services.
Every rental event is assigned a Bethel University event manager. You will have one primary contact from your initial phone inquiry through final billing—one contact, one contract, and one bill.
We recommend that you make your space reservations at least 30 days in advance. It is difficult for us to entertain rental requests with less than a 14-day notice.
