About us


The Dormitory is a historic event venue located in the downtown area of Auburn, Georgia. This unique building was constructed in 1888 and was formerly used as a women's dormitory for the Perry - Rainey College, which is no longer standing. The Dormitory has been meticulously restored by the City of Auburn and renovated with the goal of maintaining its historic characteristics and charm.

This historic building features original hardwood floors, rustic-elegant chandeliers, exposed brick and vintage architectural hardware. It boasts an abundance of natural light, and an open floor plan that can easily be used and decorated as you see fit. The 5000-square-foot event space is perfect for both your ceremony/reception or corporate function and can accommodate up to 200 guests. 


The main floor of the Dormitory includes a lobby, cocktail (studio) area and warming kitchen. The studio or cocktail area is also used for  meetings, showers, small parties and rehearsal dinners. The large ballroom’s where your event will take place, are situated on the second floor of this urban chic venue.

We allow you to choose your own outside vendors for a truly personalized affair. There’s an in-house bar, complete with bartenders and bar ware for all of your beverage needs, as well as an on-site prep area for your caterer.
