Main Campus

St. Joseph Hall

Edwin Forrest Durang designed the seven-story building with towered, Loire Valley facade and French Gothic porte-cochere. Considered the jewel of the campus, the 95-foot high Rotunda is breathtaking in design. A leaded-stained glass skylight crowns the Greco-Roman Rotunda with marble floors, grand chestnut staircase and balconies. This lovely open area is conducive to a variety of social and business events and combined with the two adjoining parlors, has the capacity to comfortably accommodate meeting groups of 20 or more and seated receptions for more than 200 guests.


East Parlor & Redmond Room

Built to entertain visitors, these classic Edwardian rooms feature original chandeliers in the center of the room, marble fireplaces, aged oak moldings, and finished hardwood floors. Either room is the perfect setting for a two-hour meeting, an all-day workshop, or a special event. Combined with the Rotunda, the parlors can accommodate a seated reception for more than 200 guests.

SugarLoaf Hill

Commonwealth Chateau

Once the elegant home of Philadelphia real estate mogul Albert M. Greenfield, the Commonwealth Chateau at SugarLoaf is the perfect setting for your next special event. Secluded on 30-wooded acres bordering the Wissahickon Valley, the Chateau offers a gracious, yet intimate space that sets the tone for business and social events as well as conferences.

Guests will feel at home in the tastefully decorated spaces, moving from the foyer, with its elegant, sweeping staircase, into the grand salon and dining room. Resplendent with three exquisite chandeliers, the dining room can easily host up to 130 people for dinner and dancing, and the adjoining grand salon is perfect for guests to meet, greet, and socialize.


A well-proportioned library on the first floor is the ideal space to host a board meeting or small conference for 20 for less.
