Our team of professional event planners will be happy to assist with logistics, university policies, menu planning and room layout/setup, and recommend vendors.

About Bellarmine University

Just minutes from downtown Louisville, Ky., Bellarmine University is set on three hills in the artful and eclectic Highlands neighborhood. Our lush, 175-acre campus comprises more than 50 buildings, including Bellarmine Centro, a three-story structure connected by a soaring glass atrium to one of the university’s foundational buildings; the W.L. Lyons Brown Library; Wilson Wyatt Center for the Arts (Edward L. McGrath Art Gallery, Amy Cralle Theater, Black Box Theater); George G. Brown Center (Amelia Brown Frazier Convocation Hall, newly renovated and expanded University Dining Hall); Knights Hall; and Our Lady of the Woods Chapel. Outdoor spaces include the expansive Maurice D.S. Johnson Quad and the intimate Piazza Clayton. Our award-winning architecture evokes the beautiful Italian hill towns of Tuscany, birthplace of our namesake and patron, Roberto Bellarmino.

Bellarmine organizations, students, faculty, staff, alumni, external groups and individuals are welcome to hold events at Bellarmine.

Bellarmine is a tobacco-free campus; no smoking or tobacco products are allowed on the premises.
