About New College of Florida - - College Hall known as Charles Ringling Mansion

Charles Ringling, one of the six famous Ringling Circus brothers, built his magnificent mansion in 1925-1926 as a winter retreat for his family. In the 1960s, New College of Florida purchased the estate, known today as College Hall, for its administrative and academic needs. The first floor features a music room with Santos Mahogany wood floors and timbered ceilings, a beautiful living room with marble fireplace, and an enclosed tiled terrace.
The elegant building covered by Etowah marble with its spacious lawn offers exquisite bayfront sunsets that adds a unique touch to any event.

    Charles Ringling Mansion is such a gorgeous venue. Same bayfront view as Ca D'Zan next door at half the cost, and you get so much more for your money: the lawn and bayfront deck are HUGE, and we also had access to huge indoor (air conditioned!) area including the sunroom, sitting room, dining hall, indoor bathrooms, and staircase for our grand entrance. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how gorgeous the mansion and grounds were. As another review mentioned, it is first and foremost a school so they aren't as responsive or flexible as you would get at a venue primarily for events, but we didn't have any problems. Jeff, the site manager, was great. He clearly has a soft spot for weddings and went out of his way to accommodate for us on several details. In our opinion, Charles Ringling Mansion is the best-kept secret venue in Sarasota!

    Gorgeous Venue! It is a primarily a college so it is difficult to reach people and the college isn't flexible on time allotted for the day of. You only have the day of from 11:00 am - 10:00 pm. There isn't an option to rent extra hours either. However the location is beautiful and affordable compared to most!
