Our goal is to deliver a most memorable experience to you and your attendees. We bring together our many campus partners to help organize your requirements for accommodations, food & beverage, meeting space, audio-visual and parking. We invite you to consider other unique on-site attractions to enhance your event and plan an Alpine Climb, tour the Nuclear Reactor, Planetarium, Museum of Art, or visit LIVELab, to name a few.

For any questions about food & beverage on campus, please review the Campus Food and Beverage Policy.

While here, you will want to discover our backyard as well! McMaster is well known for its natural surroundings, bordering Cootes Paradise and the famous Royal Botanical Gardens. Several trails can be accessed from the McMaster property and will take you down to the shores of the marsh that ultimately lead to the Hamilton Harbour. All yours to enjoy while visiting us!

Some things are worth seeing for yourself, so please let us know when we can host you for a site visit and tour.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Warm Regards,

Conference & Event Services Team
