Host your next meeting or event with Sage! Our spaces are bright and modern, while celebrating the unique history of the Leon and Thea Koerner University Centre. Plus, you can expect the same great quality food we serve in our restaurant.

I have booked many events at Sage, from receptions and buffets to more intimate receptions. The service is professional, timely and accommodating. They make it so easy to enjoy this lovely venue on campus.
