Facility Rental

image of Cottage ClubUniversity Cottage Club is available for rentals by members and member sponsored events when its active members are not using the facility. Non member functions require a member sponsor.

The clubhouse lends itself to various types of events; weddings, receptions, dinners, cocktail parties and meetings. As well as being a historic site, the layout provides an easy flow from room to room, and from the interior to the exterior. It truly is the perfect spot for a special party.

Beautiful paneling, oriental carpets, large windows, a grand staircase and comfortable furnishings provide a stately, yet warm atmosphere. A courtyard with a flowing fountain faces a meticulously landscaped back lawn. Stepping down to the brick walkway and terrace you may continue to the stone walk leading to a pair of gazebos nestled in the large shrubs. Tents may be erected either on the courtyard, which provides an extra ‘room’ for your guests and protection from the weather, or on the large back lawn. The courtyard can accommodate a tent up to 30’x50’. The back lawn can accept a larger tent. The Dining Room seats 106 guests comfortably with space for some additional tables, if needed.

Seating may also be planned for the courtyard. It is possible to accommodate up to as many as 200 on the courtyard. Your caterer can arrange additional seating. All rental are required to use our preferred caterer. The rental of linens, glassware and china is also available through your caterer.

Please contact the Manager at (609.921.6137) for information regarding availability and other queries.
