The Whittemore House is a conference center and private club for faculty, staff and friends of Washington University. This historic house is an integral part of campus life.

With private meeting rooms, comfortable sitting rooms, an inviting veranda and a large dining room, Whittemore House is able to serve member's and guests' special event needs.  Available also for non-members who may be sponsored by a Whittemore House member, it creates a warm, inviting atmosphere for your next celebration.
