Our Facility

The AUM Center for Lifelong Learning is perfectly suited for small conferences, seminars, and meetings. We can accommodate groups of 80 to 100 people in our large rooms on the first floor. We also have six small classrooms (which work great for break-out rooms). Our small classrooms can accommodate from 20 to 36 people (depending on the room you choose). Most of these rooms are located on the first floor of our building. We have convenient, free parking very close to the building.

All of our rooms have tables and chairs and may be setup in a variety of ways (U-shape, classroom-style, pods, or theatre-style). However, we will work with you to arrange our rooms to best meet your event's needs.

Computer Labs

The AUM Center for Lifelong Learning also has computer labs for rent. These labs are ideally suited for small training classes. The smallest computer lab has 12 computers, and the largest lab has 24 computers. All of the computer labs are equipped with Internet access, a white-board, a data projector, and an instructor computer.

Our goal is to make it easy for your employees to train in our computer labs. Our lab technician will install the software you need on our computers, and he will make sure they are working properly before your training begins. This service is $75 per hour per lab.

Services Offered

Catering

Unlike many other venues in Montgomery, we allow outside groups who use our space to bring in or to order their own food and drinks. Since you may select your own caterer, you always get what you want!

Many of our clients like the convenience of letting us take care of their beverages and snacks. We offer an unlimited beverage package that you may take advantage of during your event. Our package includes coffee, bottled water, and assorted soft drinks. This service is only $7.50 per person. We can also provide packaged snacks for morning or afternoon breaks for $3.50 per person. Both of our catering packages are limited to on-site consumption.

Audiovisual Equipment

Every room at the AUM Center for Lifelong Learning is equipped with wall-size white-boards, a laptop, a screen, a data projector, and Internet access (both wired and wireless). We provide technological support for all of our audiovisual equipment for every event housed at our Center. Our equipment rental rates are very affordable. For a list of these rates, please see the Room Capacities and Rates document.

Although we encourage the use of our audiovisual equipment, clients may certainly bring their own equipment if they wish to do so. However, we will not be able to provide technological support for equipment that does not belong to AUM.

Conference Registration Assistance

OutReach at Auburn Montgomery offers online registration for your conference, seminar, or meeting hosted at our facility or at any off-campus location.

We can also handle a variety of other conference services to assist you (folders, copying handouts, etc.).

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I book an event?

Call or e-mail Clara Taylor at OutReach at Auburn Montgomery. Clara's phone number is 334-244-3343. Her email address is Clara.Taylor@OutReach.AUM.edu. She will be happy to give you a tour of the building, as well as provide a quote for all of the space and services that you need.  Her office hours are from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. After office hours, just e-mail or leave a message. She will get back to you promptly.

Booking your event is easy. Clara will reserve the rooms for your event and send you the required paperwork electronically. Your confirmation will be sent as soon as your paperwork and insurance certificate are received.

What rooms are available?

Room availabilities vary depending on the date and time you need. We can reserve rooms that are not being used for our classes or programs. You may contact our office to verify availability for the specific date and time you are interested in reserving. We will be happy to assist you in finding a date and a room that will work for your event.

What types of events can the Center for Lifelong Learning Accommodate?

Events housed at our facility are primarily for corporate meetings, conferences, seminars, and other professional events. Unfortunately, we do not rent our space for showers, family reunions, weddings, or parties of any kind. Also, since AUM is an alcohol-free institution, we cannot rent space for events that serve alcohol.

Am I required to pay a security deposit? When is my payment due?

We do not require a security deposit to book any event held at our Center.  We will e-mail your invoice the day after your event is over. Our payment arrangement works great for state and federal agencies who are not allowed to pay beforehand. However, please note that we do expect prompt payment—no later than 30 days past your event date.

Is Insurance Required?

Proof of liability insurance is required for all events held at our facility. It is easy. All you have to do is contact your insurance provider for a certificate of insurance, or we can direct you to a third party provider if preferred. NOTE: We do not provide quotes for insurance coverage.

We must have your insurance certificate before we will confirm your event. All insurance certificates must name Auburn University at Montgomery, Auburn University, its Board of Trustees, Faculty, Staff, and Agents as Additional Insureds on the General Liability Policy.
