Food and Conference Services

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and in support of federal, provincial, and municipal advisories to help mitigate the spread of the virus, the Conference Services office is working on a phased approach to reopening. Please contact our team to discuss your event. Please email with your event inquiries: we would be thrilled to hear from you.

It is after a lot of discussion and reflection that we have made the difficult decision to remain closed for our 2021 hotel-style accommodations. Due to the unpredictable nature of travel advisories and recommendations during this time, we feel this is the best option for our team, our students and our guests.  

We regularly update our Facebook and Instagram pages, if you'd like to follow us on either platform. (We also communicate our catering, event, and virtual-event services on these platforms!).

Thank you again for thinking of us for your visit in Thunder Bay, we wish you and your family a safe & healthy summer! 

Our picturesque and centrally located campus, functional facilities, delicious food and trouble-free planning all come together to ensure your function is a memorable success.

Year round, we offer a variety of hospitality services to host your special event, including:

  • Coordinating meeting space and social functions.
  • Arranging special room setups, catering, signage and parking permits.
  • Facilitating audio-visual and video conferencing needs.
  • Providing planning, support and on-call assistance throughout your event. 

Planning an event or a conference can be an overwhelming task, and Lakehead University's Conference Services Department recognizes your need to look at the bigger picture. Let us handle the details so you can give your delegates the attention they deserve.

Contact us at or by phone at (807) 343-8799 so our experienced Coordinators can make your idea a reality.
