The Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) rents conference rooms, a 275-person auditorium, and classrooms to groups outside the VIMS community. These spaces may be rented for meetings, lectures, and other not-for-profit functions. Furniture, linens, coffee/tea, and other set-ups can also be arranged for on-site events. All uses must be approved by VIMS’ Special Events Coordinator or the Dean and Director. To inquire about having an event at VIMS, please contact our Advancement office at 804-684-7061 or [[programs]].
