Host your event at Hollins

Since 1842, people have come to Hollins to be inspired. To celebrate. To be transformed. Make historic Hollins in Roanoke, Virginia, the setting for your next meeting, celebration, or special event, and take advantage of our extensive facilities.


We make business a pleasure.

Whether you're scheduling a corporate retreat, business seminar, banquet, or off-site meeting, you know that the facility and service you choose are crucial. Along with the elegance and charm of our historic campus, we offer meeting rooms that keep pace with today's most demanding technologies. For example, inside Hollins' Wyndham Robertson Library is the 40-seat Jackson Screening Room, which supports video and computer, 16mm, and 35mm slide projection. Moody Center features the Roanoke Times Conference Room, an elegant room which seats 18 and offers current technology for all of your presentation needs. We also offer the services of our audiovisual department for any of our facilities you choose.


To celebrate. To share.

Classic Revival architecture joins the natural beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains to create one of the valley's most unique gathering places. Whether you're putting together a long-overdue reunion for extended family, special holiday party, wedding, wedding reception, or small gathering of old friends, Hollins offers the facilities, location, and services that will make your event memorable. There's the richly adorned Hollins Room. The southern charm of the Green Drawing Room. The tall trees and meandering stream that define the Beale Garden. And so much more. We even offer athletic facilities, including a full-size gymnasium with regulation basketball and volleyball courts, training rooms, and an indoor climbing wall. Our swim center's competition-size pool features six lanes, two diving boards, and plenty of spectator seating.


A taste of the sublime.

From light hors d'oeuvres to specially prepared meals, our catering options are designed to accommodate any size event.


Stay on campus.

Parents and visitors to the Hollins campus have two wonderful places to stay! The Barbee Guest House and the Robbie Hunt Burton Alumnae Cottage, both located on the east side of campus at the base of Faculty Avenue, offer overnight accommodations for alumnae and other guests. More »
