Conference Services

Prepare for a Conference Experience Unlike Any Other

Escape from the confines of your typical work environment and open your mind to a truly unique conference experience - one that stimulates the mind, refreshes the body and soul, and results in a meeting that is both creative and productive.

Nestled in a scenic bend of the Monongahela River just 35 miles south of Pittsburgh, our 92-acre, tree-lined campus is the ideal setting for both large and small groups. With more than 100 different meeting venues, full-service technology and meeting planner support, first-class menu options, and hotel-style recreational amenities, Cal U's conference services are second to none.

Whether you're hosting an executive planning session for 10, sales training for 60 or an annual meeting for 600, find inspiration at California University of Pennsylvania.

Current University Conference Services include:

  • Executive conferencing - facilities and services to enhance corporate training and seminars, executive retreats, association meetings, and leadership enrichment events.
  • Camp programs - indoor and outdoor locations and support for sports and religious youth camps, non-profit gatherings, and academic meetings.
