About Branford House Mansion
Built in the 19th century and modeled after the famous Newport mansions, the Branford House at UConn Avery Point offers an elegant location on the Connecticut shoreline that creates the perfect ambience for a memorable special event. It's an ideal setting for special moments, beneath a tent billowing with sea breezes as your guests look on and sailboats glide by. With its beautiful stone façade and warm, hand-carved wooden panel interiors, the Branford House Mansion hosts festive events and gala celebrations year-round. Mingle with guests on the sprawling stone veranda and enjoy dining and dancing in the ballroom. Your family and friends will be charmed by it all – stone terraces, the great room’s two-story marble fireplace, rococo ceilings, a lawn that stretches to the Avery Point Lighthouse, and waves breaking on the shore. The Grand Ballroom and East and West Wing rooms comfortably accommodate up to 200 guests for a full-course dinner or buffet. Our coordinator will work with your event planner to select the most appropriate floor plan and various facility details. For events hosting more than 200 guests, we suggest a tent on the lawn featuring spectacular water views.
