Conferences and meeting rooms at WPI

The WPI campus offers a number of meeting spaces suitable for many types of events ranging from small meetings to extravagant affairs.   At the hub of activity on campus, our Rubin Campus Center offers our largest meeting space, the Odeum. This room, with its state-of-the-art features, is our most flexible space and was designed to host everything from lectures, to catered banquets. 

Our second largest meeting space on campus, Alden Hall, is a favorite. Built in 1940, it boasts cathedral ceilings, stained glass windows, and  a large stage.  It is a popular spot for performances but also offers great ambiance for more elegant affairs. 

One of our most unique locations WPI has to offer to its direct employees and alumni is the Higgins House.  With unique ambiance and charm; this Old English Tudor offers the perfect intimate venue for smaller groups.
