Longhouse

The Longhouse Education and Cultural Center is Evergreen's center for community gatherings. Built in the Native American tradition, the Longhouse is exceptional for large yet intimate gatherings. The Cedar Room and Welcome Hall are wonderful spaces to hold conference registration, receptions, and banquets. The collapsible walls of the North Wing provide maximum versatility to the space, offering four classrooms for 50 people, banquet space for 250 or theater space for up to 450. The indoor fire pits and revolving Native art exhibits add to the unique ambiance of the venue.

Seminar II

We are proud to present our newly constructed Seminar II building. It is comprised of 5 pods designed to maximize space and energy efficiency. Each room strikes a perfect balance between technology and nature by offering integrated A/V equipment for the most advanced applications alongside the latest in "green" technology. Seminar II is home to 30 person classrooms, 75 seat tiered lecture halls, and 80 person workshop rooms, all with large windows that let in plenty of natural light, furniture made from recycled materials, and decorated with recycled hardwood panels and floors.

Lecture Halls

The lecture halls with their tiered seating, integrated A/V equipped Smart Podiums, and varying seating capacities are great for film or computer based presentations, lectures, workshops, and large classes. There are a total of five halls with fixed seating for 75-300. The lecture hall rotunda is an ideal registration area to greet your conferees or it can be used as a breakout space to stretch your legs and get a cup of coffee before the next session.

Library Building

The Library building is home to many of the classroom spaces and multi-purpose rooms available on campus. Classrooms vary in size and can hold anywhere from 20-300 people depending upon your needs. The first, second, and third floor mezzanines are perfect for large receptions, presentations, or banquets. The fourth floor holds a 6,000 square foot multipurpose room with wraparound windows, access to the roof patio and magnificent views of campus, the roof gardens, and the surrounding forest. The adjoining kitchen adds to the versatility of this space. PC and Macintosh classrooms and computer labs are available as well.

Here you'll also find the Weaving Studio, the Fine Metals Studio, the Geology Lab and a science based Computer Applications Lab.

Space Reservations

Conference spaces are available year-round though our status as an academic institution makes space availibility contingent upon the needs of academic programs. We cannot schedule spaces until after the quarterly academic class schedules have been finalized.

The Conference Service staff will schedule meeting facilities that are compatible with the size of your group and the needs of other programs on campus.

Occasionally some facilities are not available because of academic scheduling, basic maintenance, or remodeling. We are happy to note your preference for facilities and will schedule them if at all possible. The College reserves the right to change building assignments for lodging, meeting space or recreational facilities.

Scale diagrams are available for our large general session spaces for planning seating and table configurations. Please provide advance notice of the number and type of tables you will need for your program and if any staging is required.

Facility Use Fee

Each registered participant in your program will be charged a daily fee for use of college meeting rooms, social spaces and display areas. The fee includes basic setup of your meeting/social space. Please note that this does not include access to computer labs, art annex specialty areas (ceramic studios, wood and metal shops, printmaking studio, etc.), College Recreation Center (CRC), nor the Communications Building performance areas.

Sports camps that use primarily fields and athletic facilities pay a per person, per day, facility use fee. This fee includes access to the CRC during normal open hours and one classroom for instruction.  Contact Conference Services for fee rate.
