College and University campuses provide the perfect backdrop for faith-based meetings and events. From affordability factors…to environments that provide introspection and diversion free settings, venues that can seat 10-100,000…to locations that may be ripe for mission work, campus venues offer something for every faith-based meeting.

In this presentation, you will find information that will help you to understand all of the key elements provided at academic venues that will help faith-based groups as they GATHER, BREAK BREAD, PRAY, PLAY, and SLEEP.

Once you’ve gone through this program, visit or to see the wide array of venues we have right at your fingertips! At Unique Venues, we will do all the work for you as you SEARCH for meeting facilities and conference centers, FIND college and university venues and SELECT the perfect campus venue for your meetings and conferences.
