The Williams Campus is available for use by members of the Williams community for weddings. The Williams community is defined as currently enrolled Williams students, currently employed members of the faculty and staff (as listed in the current College Directory), emeritus members of the faculty, alumni/alumnae, and the sons and daughters of any of these. There are fees for use of the facilities, and to cover custodial costs. To inquire, contact Adrianne Epe, Assistant Director for Conferences, by email or by phone at 413.597.2592.

Wedding Ceremonies

Information about use of Thompson Memorial Chapel can be found on the Chaplains’ website. The Chaplains’ office can also answer questions about the use of the Jewish Religious Center.

Wedding Receptions

The cost for renting a campus facility for a reception is approximately $850. This charge includes custodial service before and after the reception, the use of College grounds for a tent, the first floor of the building at a House site, and conference office liaison service. It does not include relocation of furnishings or rental of tents, tables, chairs, etc. If lawns are damaged at a site, even if due to weather, the contracted labor charges for repairs will be added to the bill.

We cannot reserve a location for a social event more than six months in advance. In addition, a one-day umbrella insurance policy (minimum of $1,000,000 combined single limit for bodily injury and property damage on a per occurrence basis) is required for all social event clients. The policy must name “The President and Trustees of Williams College” as an additional insured for the day of the event.

For information about use of the Faculty/Alumni House, contact Kathy Musinski.
