The new FSU Conference Center began construction in June 2008. Our new facility is located on the previous Conference Center site at the corner of Copeland and West Pensacola Streets in Tallahassee. The new Conference Center is approximately 47,000 square feet featuring a Jacobethan-style brick exterior and three floors to house a large auditorium, dining room, several breakout rooms, an executive boardroom, food preparation facilities, and administrative offices.
The new FSU Conference Center employs the latest technology in its conferencing rooms. The Center is capable of hosting everything from small meetings to large regional conferences. The Center retains its name, honoring the late FSU Provost Gus Turnbull.
Also, adjacent to the Conference Center site is a new five-story FSU parking garage, which opened August 2008.
