Facilities and Capacity

As a college campus, Drew University offers you many options for hosting weddings. The historic buildings of Mead Hall and S.W. Bowne Great Hall can transport you to another era. In Mead Hall, you'll find romantic columns and a foyer. Marble and wood accents throughout give a nod to the building’s history. Moving to the S.W. Bowne Great Hall and you are greeted by architecture that takes its inspiration from Oxford’s Christ Church Hall. The wood paneling and stone staircase make a powerful statement, leaving a lasting impression. In the Great Hall, you can exchange your vows or dine under the lofty ceilings in a space that reflects the grandeur of your love. For a smaller ceremony, the Craig Chapel continues this romantic feel with a piano and pipe organ.

Services Offered

Each wedding hosted on the campus is executed through the aid of the college’s event coordinators. Throughout the planning process to the day of your wedding, the team can help organize the details of your nuptial event. The college can also offer catering and food may be served in various styles, such as plated and buffet.

History

The university began as a seminary in 1867. It was founded with a large sum and the property being gifted by Daniel Drew who worked on Wall Street and in the steamboat industry. Throughout the years the institution expanded and now has both undergraduate and graduate-level programs.
