Catering and Kitchen Rental


The Emerging Technology Complex offers a variety of options for both food and beverages. We use local caterers for all of our events and our services can be customized to your individual needs.

A simple continental breakfast or a hearty lunch buffet can put your guests in the right frame of mind. Allowing us to coordinate these services provides you with peace of mind and time to work on other important tasks, but if you prefer to keep these details in house, we simply ask that your caterer complete our Catering Agreement to comply with our guidelines and certified catering kitchen.

Adult Beverages

Victoria College does allow beer and wine to be served at the Conference & Education Center.  A REQUEST TO SERVE ALCOHOL is required and due to your event coordinator before any alcohol service can be incorporated into your event plan.  Our preferred partner for these services is the Leo J Welder Center for the Performing Arts, also owned and managed by the College and holder of the College's TABC license.  Each establishment provides certified and insured service personnel and offers a wide variety of beer and wine options to custom a selection that complements your event and menu.

Once onsite, we have portable bars and coolers to keep your beverages the perfect temperature and service options professional and efficient.
