Outstanding Event Venue! - An Eventective User

For the past six months, Bay Area Consultants Network has held their hybrid meetings in the Creekside Room at Dominican University, San Rafael, CA USA. It has been a fabulous experience! The room is ideal in its size and layout, with outdoor events possible too, with the information technology and connectivity we needed, and the service and support it requires to work together. And, it is right next door to the campus cafeteria, which serves outstanding meals at very reasonable cost. For example, they offer an amazing full course breakfast, excellently prepared with something for everyone, and you can go back multiple times if you so wish. The contacts we worked with went out of their way to accommodate us and our needs, and to ensure everything went smoothly on the days of our event. I can highly recommend Dominican University event venues without reservation!

Kristin Nute has been a pleasure to work with over the years on our events. She makes it simple, and straight forward. Looking forward to our January conference.

Perfect place and great execution - An Eventective User from Belvedere, CA

Dominican University of California's Meadowlands Hall was a spectacular setting for our reception on September 21st. Food was delicious and beautifully presented, and the entire team was knowledgeable and helpful from start to finish. We would definitely book them again!

Wedding at Domenican - An Eventective User from San Rafael, CA

The chapel was the perfect fit for our wedding, we did not have many guests, there was plenty of space, we were able to decorate it the way we imagined. Kristin was very helpful, every question, every idea she was there for us.

Chamber Musicians of Northern California - An Eventective User from Walnut Creek, CA

We had over 100 musicians attend our two-day workshop at Dominican University and everyone loved being on this beautiful campus. There were a lot of organizational details needed to make this event happen and the Dominican staff could not have been more responsive and helpful. We hope to return to Dominican for another workshop next year.

Company Retreat in a GREAT LOCATION - An Eventective User from San Rafael California

My local property management company had our retreat at Dominican University this past Friday. Working wit Jennifer Hute was so simple and easy. She is detailed, friendly and a great person to work with. We had our food catered by the local caterer with Oscar the cher and the food was delicious. The room we rented perfect - bright and the right size......We look forward to returning again in the future. I highly recommend renting space on the Dominican University campus... Thank you!

Wonderful gathering! - An Eventective User from Richmond, CA

I want to offer my gratitude for helping me create such a wonderful event for my father. I was so happy with how everything went. The space was beautiful and just right, the food delicious and presentation was lovely, the audio & video worked flawlessly, and of course everyone was so helpful and gracious. I received many compliments on each of those aspects. It all came together beautifully and was the perfect way to remember Dad. Thank you so much!
