Client testimonials

A hybrid event requires special accommodations and Kirsten provided helpful introductions to appropriate contacts in [Georgian’s] technology departments and readily accommodated any changes, equipment, set up, and visits needed. Kirsten and every member of her team went above and beyond before our event, throughout the event, and after the event in every area. I would highly recommend this facility for future events!

We loved the way the tables were decorated and our kids did a great job making speeches. Ralph and I feel so blessed. It was a wonderful day of celebration with family and friends that we will never forget. Again, Angela thank you for a remarkable day. We would certainly recommend Georgian to everyone. We can’t express enough our appreciation for your part in our special day. Thank you. You all did a great job.

I just wanted to say how incredible Kirsten was with our SCDSB Early Years Conference this weekend. She answered every question promptly, was always available to us, and was incredibly flexible on the day of.

We are so happy that we chose to have our wedding at Georgian College. The grounds were beautiful and the dining space at TLC was cozy and very stylish. The event co-ordinators at Georgian were beyond helpful and truly invested in making sure our wedding was even more special than we ever dreamed of. TLC catering was amazing; our friends and family would not stop complimenting the food! From the starter salad all the way to the late night table we were thoroughly impressed with the quality of the food and the service.

Your event supports our students

It’s true! Your patronage matters to us because our students matter to us.

By hosting your event at a Georgian College event venue, you are directly contributing to the student experience. Every department involved in event planning and execution hires Georgian students and event revenue is re-invested in student services and spaces.

  • Classroom and lecture hall rentals contribute to maintenance and upgrades in these spaces so technology stays current.
  • Catering from the Georgian Dining Room or The Last Class provides our students with part-time jobs as well as the hands-on experience they need to excel in the culinary and hospitality industries.
  • Rental fees from our Athletics and Fitness Centre and The Last Class go directly to the Georgian College Students’ Association to put back into student life activities.
