New College has a variety of historic and modern venues on our beautiful, bayfront campus to hold your wedding, party, conference, meeting, concert, or other event.
Celebrations at College Hall
Historic Bayfront Mansion
Our beautiful bayfront, with its natural foliage and historic mansions facing Sarasota Bay, is a popular location for weddings, art fairs, receptions, dinners, cocktail parties and dances. Large tents can be accommodated on the expansive lawn.
Conference, Performance and Educational Spaces
Harry Sudakoff Conference Center
The Harry Sudakoff Lecture and Conference Center, whose 400-seat auditorium can be subdivided into meeting rooms for groups of 50 to 400. This is a great space for fairs and exhibits, as well as cabaret-style concerts.
Mildred Sainer Art & Music Pavilion
The 260-seat Mildred F. Sainer Art & Music Pavilion is ideal for small theatrical and musical performances (a grand piano is available), as well as lectures and panel discussions. Receptions can be held in the lobby, in the nearby Isermann Gallery or outdoors in the PepsiCo Arcade and Forum, which can accommodate outdoor receptions with plenty of space for large serving tables, a bar and cabaret tables under the covered arches forming a square around the courtyard.
