Venue Description

Thank you for considering UTEC as the venue for your next event!

Our unique and historic building is perfect for weddings, galas, concerts, meetings, seminars, cocktail parties, birthdays, performances, lectures, film releases, and so much more! Facility rentals help to support UTEC's mission-driven work with young people, both through rental revenue and by providing diverse opportunities for youth to be involved in planning and staffing. After an ambitious renovation, finished in 2012, UTEC is now the oldest LEED Platinum Certified building in the country. We take pride in our “green” features, from the solar panels on our roof to the local ingredients in our kitchen. 

LOCATION INFO | UTEC is located in the historic center of downtown Lowell, Massachusetts. Lowell is known as the cradle of the Industrial Revolution, with a skyline of historic steeples and striking mill buildings, cut by two rivers and an innovative canal system. Out of town guests can enjoy a plethora of museums, sporting events, restaurants, art galleries, cultural events, and seasonal canal boat and trolley tours hosted by Lowell National Historic Park. Airports in Boston, MA and Manchester, NH are within 35 miles. There are many hotels and motels nearby, including the UMass Inn and Conference Center, directly across the street.
