The Student Center Ballroom can accommodate up to 275 people for your special day.

We offer presentation technology for media shows during the reception, staging for the bridal party head table, and round banquet tables for guests. The hardwood floor is suitable for dancing with no added expense of a rented dance floor.

Special lighting will give the room just the right atmosphere.

Our on-site catering services will make your day special by meeting all of your dining needs, anything from a mashed potato bar to a full-serve meal.  Alcohol may be served as arranged through the catering office.  Information from our catering office, including sample menus, is available at

Standard Ballroom wedding rentals include a 4 hour delivery and decorating period plus 8 hours for the event on the reception day to conclude no later than midnight. 

You might consider using our theater for your ceremony or a large meeting room for a bridal party lounge.  Other spaces are available for rental to meet your vision of the event. 

Please contact Chris Cole, Student Center Director, at 724.738.2718 or to discuss all of the possibilities at the Robert M. Smith Student Center!  We are happy to check availability for any date, but due to the heavy schedule of student events during the academic year, weddings are best scheduled during the months of mid-May through mid-August or during scheduled breaks in the academic calendar.  Please call for details.
