Community Spaces & Housing

 

The Centrum

The heart of the Guild campus is the Centrum. A renovated grange hall dating to the 1940s, it features dining and living space, as well as staff office spaces. Our kitchen and dining room can accommodate up to 50 guests for meals. (More information about the Guild dining experience is available here.) The main floor of the Centrum is a large living room space where guests relax, read, sit around the fire, or enjoy lively conversation. There is a phone and guest computer, as well as high-speed wireless internet access available for use. The administrative offices are located in the Centrum, as well as an attached greenhouse which we use to germinate our vegetable starts for the organic garden each year.
