CSUMB Salinas City Center


The Rotunda is the spectacular glass enclosed main entrance of the building. It is equally dramatic by day or night with vaulted ceilings, slate and hardwood floors. The space is open and roomy, with views of historic Main Street Salinas and our private back patio. 

This is a great event space for a standing reception or mixer. The typical setup for this would be a designated welcome station near the entrance to greet and check-in guests, a buffet station comprised of a few 6 ft tables and 6 high top cocktail tables scattered throughout the room, allowing your guests to grab a bite to eat while mingling with others. We also have a bar that we can provide for your licensed pourers to serve from should you decide to offer alcohol service at your event. There are multiple benches placed around the perimeter of the Rotunda as well as on the patio for guests to take a seat and relax as they enjoy your event. 

We have one microphone that is connected to speakers that are built into this event space that you are welcome to use during your event. Any additional AV would need to be independently contracted by the client via a third party vendor. Please feel free to reach out for recommendations as we have a couple AV teams that we regularly work with who are familiar with our facility.
