Summer Conferences

Conference and Guest Services provides guests with the highest level of service at an affordable rate.

We are no longer accepting Event Inquiries for summer 2024.

Interested in bringing a group to NC State over the summer? On-campus apartments and residence halls are available for conference and camp program use from late May through late July, depending on the university’s academic calendar.  The Conference and Guest Services office provides a one-stop-shop service working closely with campus partners to provide a seamless planning experience and one inclusive invoice. 

If you are not looking to house your camp in our residential space, and are just looking for conference space, please reach out to our campus partners at Student Centers or the McKimmon Center to assist in your need for space. 

Conference Planning Timeline

The annual conference season runs from late May until late July. If you are planning a program for the upcoming summer, we encourage you to reach out as early as possible so that our office can offer you the greatest level of support and the widest variety of options. Please note that during some periods, starting as early as January, we must turn away programs due to lack of availability of resources during particularly busy weeks of the summer season.

The Conference and Guest Services office begins planning for the upcoming summer in September and October. By January, the majority of programs have already been contracted. During the spring semester, our team will finalize details for the summer season, making any necessary adjustments with program planners and confirming reservations of facilities and services.

Additional Services

NC State is able to book your guests in a variety of different residential styles, conveniently in the heart of campus! We can organize dining for you at one of our two amazing dining halls, or organize your catering needs. During the summer time, parking is not hard to come by at NC State. We can organize permits for your guests to easily park on campus. Indoor and outdoor reservable campus space is also available for your group, and we would be happy to organize those details for you as well! All of campus, both indoor and outdoor spaces, have access to our guest wifi during your visit.

Meeting Space

All residence halls on campus have lounges and common areas which can comfortably accommodate 20 or more people. However, if you need more formal meeting rooms, space may be available on other parts of our campus. NC State Student Centers and academic buildings offer traditional meeting rooms and classroom space, pending availability. Our on-campus Orientation programs do take priority over these spaces in the summertime, but we are usually able to work with groups to meet most of their meeting space needs! 

Minors on Campus Regulation

NC State’s university regulation regarding programs which serve minors has been updated recently. Please review PRR 01.25.18 and contact the Office of Youth Programs and Compliance if your program hosts anyone under the age of 18. All programs — affiliated or unaffiliated with the university — are required to register with the Office of Youth Programs and Compliance and attest to conducting the appropriate training, background checks, etc. as required by the regulation. For any questions related to hosting youth on NC State’s campus, please contact the Office of Youth Programs and Compliance directly by email to or by calling 919-515-4256.

Programs that fail to meet the requirements will not be permitted to host their event on campus. It is recommended that program sponsors begin their registration with the YPC at least 90 days in advance of the start of their camp or program
