Weddings at Clarkson

In this Section

At Clarkson, the sky is the limit for your wedding. Whether an intimate reception or a full weekend of activities for 500 guests, our 640+ acre wooded and waterfront campus and newly renovated buildings open up endless possibilities for you and your guests. 

Our packages range from single ceremony or reception packages, all the way to full wedding weekend experiences, including rehearsal dinners, post-wedding brunches, overnight accomodations and outdoor activities. Your guests can park the car once and spend the entire weekend on campus! We also offer elopement packages. For more information on packages, please contact us.  

We can accomodate weddings as large as 250 in our indoor venues, and up to 500 outside. When you book a space at Clarkson, you are also booking an on-site wedding coordinator for your big day to assist in meeting outside vendors, finalizing details and much more. Our most popular venues include:
Cheel Campus Center                           
The Adirondack Lodge 
The Student Center                                
Clarkson Commons            
Holcroft House  
Raquette River Shores

Aramark is the exclusive caterer for Clarkson Weddings. We have standard weddings packages with the option for specialized packages as well. Anything from children's buffets, hors d'oeuvre or dessert-only receptions and five-course plated meals can be done. 

At this time, we do require that one member of the couple to be married has a connection to Clarkson - whether an alum, faculty or staff member, donor, or sponsor and those related to these categories. This can be discussed in more detail by contacting us. 

The best way to learn more about all we have to offer is to come visit us! We offer tours for interested couples at your convenience. To make a tour time, please contact us.
