The High Country Conference Center was developed as a partnership between Northern Arizona University and the City of Flagstaff to accommodate group functions for up to 1000 guests. The center features meeting spaces, a ballroom, a production kitchen and food service, and 340-car garage. Academic labs are also held here for the School of Hotel and Restaurant Management program. The building connects to a 158-key hotel through an elevated glass bridge that frames the surrounding views for visiting guests. The University has noted a dramatic increase in on-campus conferences and events since the center’s opening.
