About Us

Make historic Hollins University the setting for your next meeting, celebration, or special event. When you hold your event at Hollins, you’ll be part of a rather unique tradition. Two decades before the university opened its doors in 1842, the campus area was home to Charles Johnston’s Botetourt Springs – the area’s first luxury mineral springs spa and resort. Placed gracefully at the foot of Tinker Mountain, the resort’s hotel and private cottages were a place of rest, relaxation, and inspiration for many. Today we’re a nationally recognized liberal arts university, known for academic excellence. But we’ve always been known for our welcoming environment, facilities, and service.

In addition to our room amenities, Meriwether Godsey, the official caterer for Hollins University, provides worry-free service and fabulous food, with “Wow” ideas at reasonable prices. With a style that is simple, elegant, and cutting edge, their focus is on presentation, with fresh, beautiful food, garnishes and table arrangements that are sure to impress at your next event.
