Events & Catering

Ashland University is proud to offer premier conference venues for groups of all sizes. Our catering team provides a wide variety of services for your event, including meals, meeting and event spaces, overnight accommodations and linen packages. We have the largest facility between Cleveland and Columbus, and we can accommodate your group at a more affordable price than facilities in larger cities.

The Convocation Center at Ashland University can handle groups of six to 2,000 people in a 20,000-square-foot facility, which is the largest of its kind between Cleveland and Columbus. Our center is equipped to meet all of your needs, including service equipment, tables and chairs, food and beverage and high-quality audio/visual technology.

We also have a team of award-winning, professionally-trained chefs and service staff to cater your event.

AU is Proud to Support Locally Grown Food.
