Gentle House



Gentle House is managed by Conference and Event Services. We are currently taking reservations for the Summer of 2021 on a first come, first served basis. We hope to collect your preferred date and relevant information, however we cannot commit to your event until closer to the event date – when hopefully, more will be known about the trajectory of the current pandemic.

We strongly recommend you schedule a backup location until more is clear about State and OA guidelines. For now, we are only taking inquiries. Please contact us via email or phone to place your tentative reservations, and with questions.

Gentle House is available to host any WOU Department functions or to use as a venue for Faculty, Staff and Student Club or Organizational meetings. Please be aware that we are currently operating under the latest guidance of the Governor’s office regarding group sizes and general COVID-19 measures. See below for details.

  • A Gentle House Representative will be present for the first 1/2 hour of your reservation as well as the last 1/2 hour of the reservation.
