Furman University is the oldest, largest and most selective private institution in South Carolina. Founded in 1826, Furman moved three times in its early years before being charted as Furman University and settling in Greenville in 1850. The most recent move was in 1961, when Furman relocated to its current 800-acre location on the outskirts of Greenville. Furman University is located just 5 miles outside of Greenville, SC. Greenville is in close proximity to Atlanta, Asheville, and Charlotte. It is easily accessible by road, rail, and air. There are several hotels that can accommodate the Furman area and also have Furman rates. The 41,000 square foot Minor Herndon Mickel Tennis Center is located on the outskirts of Furman's property. The central building of the tennis center features four indoor courts with a viewing area and a clubhouse, with locker room and lounge.


Furman can equip your group with a number of desirable amenities as well. Top notch catering, access to Audio Visual Equipment and State-of-the-art technology, health and fitness facilities, and first rate academic instruction are all part of the Furman experience. The 6,000 square foot Fitness Center in the Physical Activities Center provides access to top-of-the-line aerobic and weight training equipment. The University provides comfortable lodging, a University Center and conference center for group meetings, and a beautiful campus that participants can enjoy during their leisure time. Elegant wedding receptions and corporate conferences can both be easily accommodated. We offer nine distinct venues to choose from for your conference or event, including the newly completed Younts conference center.
