Perry Campus Center & Common Grounds

Named for Doane's first president, David Brainerd Perry (1872-1912), Perry Campus Center was constructed in 1963 and hosts a number of different offices and services.

The Perry Campus Center has many meeting rooms available for your event and houses the college dining hall. The beautifully remodeled dining hall is run by SODEXO, who also caters campus events large and small. The South Dining Room seats 180 people comfortably. Other available meeting rooms are the Curtis west (seats 50), Kleinkauf east (seats 30), Trobough (seats 45) and Perry Board Room (seats 50).  Nyrop Hall is great for large receptions and can manage 120 people seated.

In addition to being a full-service facility, the Perry Campus Center also has a coffeehouse, Common Grounds. The space is popular with students, faculty, staff and community to meet, relax, study or grab a bite to eat.
