The Office of Conferences and Special Events (CASE) is the clearing house for event planning at Dickinson College. CASE also manages the Holland Union Building.
Reservation of all space on campus is handled by CASE. Dickinson College accommodates small or large groups requiring meeting space, catering, or overnight accommodations. Bookings may be as short as an hour, or an extended stay. Any need for audio/visual support can be skillfully planned and executed by the Events Support branch of the Conference Office.
