University of Southern Indiana

University Center

The University Center has been designed to support the programs, events, meetings and conferences of students, faculty, staff, alumni and guests of the University. As a focal point for University events, the University Center's central purpose and primary goal is to serve the needs of the students; however, all members of the University community and non-University groups and individuals have the opportunity to use the facilities.

The University Center plays a vital role in serving the activity, meeting and dining needs of students, faculty, staff, alumni and community. In the management capacity of the University Center, the department's goal is to consistently maintain the integrity and quality of the facility and furnishings to provide a convenient and pleasant environment for all activities.

Carter Hall (Ballroom)
Carter Hall was a generous gift of Jennings D. "Nick" Carter in loving memory of his wife Josephine K. Carter. Constructed in 1997, Carter Hall is located on the second floor of the University Center (West) and is primarily used for large meetings, conferences, weddings and dances. The total capacity of Carter Hall (rooms A,B,C, and D) is 700 guests. Using sound-dampening portable walls, it can be divided into three separate break-out rooms, (A, B or C), holding 25 to 50 people per room. Each room is self contained, carpeted and has access to a professional sound system.

Standard staging and podiums are available at no additional charge. Carter Hall D and C have a permanently installed projector and drop-down screen.
