Our Unique Venues, Conference Rooms And Unconventional Event Spaces Bring Your Retreat Ideas To Life
Located in the beautiful Catalina Mountains foothills, the Biosphere 2 campus provides a non-traditional yet accessible venue that facilitates interaction. The one-of-a-kind setting is ideal for leadership conferences, science conferences or corporate meetings.
The facilities at the Biosphere 2 Conference & Retreat Center comprise a Campus Village of 28 rustic Santa Fe-style houses holding 106 double-capacity sleeping rooms and a number of double-occupancy offices. Complete with in-suite kitchens, living areas, and internet access, the 3-5 bedroom casitas provide the perfect place to unwind and socialize in-between or after meetings. Sensible facility pricing of overnight accommodations ensures the Biosphere 2 Conference & Retreat Center is an affordable venue for your events and meetings.
Additionally, there are eight meeting rooms available in various sizes to accommodate both large and small groups; the smaller meeting rooms can serve as breakout rooms. All meeting rooms are equipped with white boards, LCD projectors and Wi-Fi.
Outdoor facilities for relaxation and informal discussion are available around campus, featuring magnificent views of the Santa Catalina Mountains. There are numerous hiking opportunities in the immediate vicinity of the campus, with abundant wildlife, including deer, blue herons, coyotes, bobcats, and more.
