12/10 recommend Campus Club
We are so pleased that we selected Campus Club for our October wedding. From the first email inquiry we sent to the Campus Club, we were impressed with the diligence, competence, and experience of the staff. The space worked well for us and our guests. There is plenty of space for everyone to spread out - the terrace, the dining room, the lounge area, and the bar. We had a variety to guests from kids to my 90 year old grandparents and everyone was comfortable. The views are stunning from every single one of the spaces! We had hoped that our ceremony would be on the terrace but it was unseasonably cold (and snowing) on our wedding day so we ended up having it indoors. We were initially disappointed but it worked out great to have guests sit at the dining tables and was really pretty. The space is nicely finished and requires very little decor to look pretty for a wedding - we only did centerpieces and cafe lighting and it looked great! This saved us a bunch of money too. The food was excellent and all of our guests’ dietary limitations were accommodated. Leading up to our wedding, we worked mostly with Jenn who is very organized and responsive and takes care of all the details we hadn’t thought of. She responded to every one of our (million) questions right away. On the day of our wedding, the managers and staff made everything run absolutely perfectly. These people really know what they’re doing. We couldn’t be happier about our wedding day. Thanks Campus Club!Sent on 10/23/2019

Spectacular Winter Wedding
My husband and I were married at this event in February and it was just a fantastic experience. We were very new to planning a wedding and did not really know where to start. The event manager Jenn at the Campus Club was very helpful in guiding us through our event, providing multiple options for layout of the venue, and what all to include/do ourselves. We could even include our dog during the ceremony! The staff was professional and friendly at the event. The food was incredible! All people could talk about after the wedding was the steak. Highly recommend! It is a great price for the food, the view, and space. Many places to take pictures around as well, with the columns in front of Coffman, the view off the terrace, and more. Cannot say enough how gracious, helpful, and accommodating the event managers and staff were.Sent on 02/12/2019

Awesome Experience-Elegant and Classy
My daughter's wedding took place at Campus club. This was the best decision of the entire wedding decisions. First, communication with Jenn was great in regard to planning with vendors, etc.Sent on 01/31/2019
Food was fantastic including appetizers and desserts. All our guests were pleased with their meals and that doesn't happen often.
Further, You can't ask for a better location. The building is beautiful and at the sights from the 4th floor are amazing especially at night. Staff were professional and attended to our guests and their request. Brent and Nick were Awesome! We were able to use the entire 4th floor and all the rooms for bride and bridesmaids getting ready. The salon staff did the bride and bridesmaids hair and makeup in the Shephard room which couldn't be better. There is plenty of light in that room and Jenn provided us with full length mirrors. They were willing to provide us lunch. The ceremony took place at ABC room which is perfect for such an event. I recommend this place for any major event!
