Grinnell College hosts hundreds of events annually, from speakers and musical performances to weddings and conferences. Whether you’re on campus or off campus, we can help you plan your event. We are a one-stop shop for reserving space; requesting room layouts, equipment, and food; and pretty much everything else you need to plan an event. We also help coordinate Commencement, Scholars’ Convocation, public events and performances, the College’s event calendar, the campus memo, and Grinnell House.
