Set dinner tables in the ballroom

 

Dining and Reception Areas

There are a number of dining options, ranging from coffee bars and snack shops to formal banquet halls, on QC’s campus. These facilities, plus beverage and food services, are available for all manner of functions—weddings, receptions, cocktails, meetings, awards ceremonies, and more. They may also be utilized for non-dining events, such as lectures or organization meetings.

 

Student Union

QC’s Student Union building hosts a variety of spaces suitable for everything from casual get-togethers to black-tie affairs. Renters have access to portable sound systems; laptop computers; LCD, overhead, and slide projectors and screens; televisions with DVD and VHS; and temporary storage space. Catering is provided through QC’s dining services, and an underground garage offers parking for approximately 120 vehicles. Outdoor parking (when available) can accommodate an additional 60 vehicles.

 

Agora

The Student Union’s Agora is available for dining, cocktail, or networking events. This warmly colored, easily accessible ground-floor space features wainscoting, large windows, a variety of seating and table options, and a wall-mounted 40-inch flat screen TV.

The Student Union building is home to a 700-person-capacity ballroom, which may be partitioned into three separate zones accommodating anywhere from 175 to 250. The multiuse space—suitable for celebrations and conferences alike—features carpeted dining and cocktail areas, five built-in LCD data projectors and screens with zoned sound and projection, spacious hardwood dance floor, and disco ball.
