External events are programs primarily created, organized, and led by external organizations or companies. If you work with an external organization or company, and you are looking for a venue for an upcoming program, you have come to the right place! For events being planned by an external organization in collaboration with a recognized Seattle University entity, please contact us to discuss how we can best support your program.
If you are an internal, Seattle University affiliate (student, staff, or faculty), and you are planning a program as part of your affiliation with the university, please visit our Internal Events page.
Seattle University is a great draw for the community. The university has hosted Destination Science day camps for over 8 summers for children ages 5-11. The rooms are spacious and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We look forward to returning year after year.N. Conway, Director Destination Science
We host a large yearly festival at Seattle University that has a million moving parts and pieces and takes over most of the campus. CES and specifically Chris Lindsey have helped us shape and navigate this from the very beginning, growing it and making it better every year. It's not hyperbole to say that there is no way we could put this on without them, and they have been amazing partners throughout this entire journey.Andrea O'Meara, Manager of Events Cascade Public Media
Excellent classrooms with top-notch technology, outstanding customer service from Chris and the team, and delicious lunches from Emerald Plate Catering!John Sturtevant, Owner Sturtevant Communication Skills Training
We have used SU for a number of years to hold leadership conferences. The campus is beautiful, the buildings are elegant and the rooms have been very comfortable for our groups of 40+. I highly recommend the venue and the [CES] team.Patrick O'Neill, President Extraordinary Conversations
We are thankful to Seattle University and for CES. The professionalism and competence of CES and its outstanding service contributed in no small measure to the success of our program, both by making the hosting process and booking smooth for us and by offering the comfortable learning environment that our students need.Giuseppe Tassone, Language Program Director Dante Alighieri Society of Washington State
We feel so lucky to have worked with CES to run our programs at Seattle University's campus. Our program relies on having multiple classrooms available each week, and CES has been extremely helpful with communicating room layouts and capacities, and making adjustments to our bookings depending on the specific needs of our programming. CES staff communicate with us clearly and in a timely manner and are always willing to work with to accommodate our needs!Melissa Hendershott, President Minds Matter Seattle
We have been working with SU CES for the past 10 years to coordinate our annual Lushootseed Language Conference and we have always received a high quality of customer service. Particularly in the last few years, prior to the pandemic, the events coordinator was very helpful and extremely supportive, helping to ensure we had a successful event.Jill LaPointe, Director Lushootseed Research
