Hold Your Events at DWU

Your Event, Our Venue

If you need a great place to hold your event, consider the facilities at DWU! 
We have a variety of options that we are happy to customize for your needs. 

Choose from a variety of venue setups:

  • Theater-style setup: chairs facing the front of the room. This arrangement fits the largest number of people in the space.  
  • Classroom-style setup: tables with two chairs on one side, facing the front of the room. This arrangement fits the fewest number of people in the space. 
  • Dining-style setup: round tables with seven chairs per table. This arrangement is best for banquets and formal events.   

Depending on which setup you choose, we can accommodate a variety of group sizes. In addition to our classrooms, conference rooms and outdoor space, we offer:

  • DWU/Avera Sports and Wellness Complex (track and gymnasium)
  • Christen Family Athletic Center (gymnasium)
  • Knox Conference Room (20-40 people)
  • Pratt Alumni Board Room (160 people)
  • Sherman Center (200-425 people; balcony seats 160)
