Save a Space!

Special Events introduces the Friends and Neighbors Space Rental Program; plus a new date for Drupal.

New Space Rental Program

Pace has recently launched its “friends and neighbors space rental program,” which allows local businesses, organizations, and individuals the opportunity to affordably rent event space at our Graduate Center at One Martine Avenue in White Plains.

Located just two blocks from the White Plains train station and with onsite parking, the Center is a perfect venue for corporate workshops and retreats, training, conferences, or parties. Our full-time special events team can handle all your needs including catering, AV equipment, décor, and your event will be staffed by your personal event planner.

Our event specialists will guide you through all planning stages of your event. We will provide pricing for any services needed for your event and will liaise with our internal service providers to make sure your requirements have been met. We will be on hand at the event to address any needs and to ensure that you have a truly successful event.

For more information on hosting an external event at Pace University please contact Kristen Vinciguerra, Associate Director of University Special Events, at 914-923-2667 or via email at kvinciguerra@pace.edu.

New Date for Drupal Launch

The date for the launch of our new CMS, Drupal, has been pushed back to March 1 to give users more time to practice on the new system and prepare their sites. A number of webmasters have been trained during the past few weeks and feedback on the new system has been positive. Look for the live site on March 1!
