Venue Description

Located near the center of campus, the Town and Gown Ballroom is our premier wedding reception location. The 6,426 square foot ballroom can comfortably accommodate up to 400 guests with ample space for a dance floor and bridal party head table. As you enter the Ballroom, your eyes are immediately drawn to the vaulting arches spanning the width of this magnificent space. Edged in gold, they create a grand, yet graceful, structure. During the day natural light flows in through French doors, and in the evening ten spectacular Schonbek chandeliers make the room sparkle. Inspired by the chandeliers produced for the coronation of an 18th-century Austrian princess, they're made of exquisite crystal teardrops that glitter overhead like hundreds of diamonds.

On the Ballroom's west end stairs leads up to the Foyer, a more intimate reception area. Resembling an elegant living room, the Foyer features antique furnishings, including grandfather clocks and hutches showcasing USC curios. A fire blazing in the Foyer's handsome stone hearth enhances the romantic mood.
