Would you like to host an event at the French House?

We’d be happy to help you organize an event at the French House. Please read through this page and if you’re ready, tell us what you need and we’ll be back in touch very soon.

How it works

The French House is available for events sponsored by members of the UW-Madison French & Italian Department and by our campus and community members whose mission aligns with ours.

Space:  Most events take place in our salon (up to 40-50 guests) or our dining room (up to 80 guests).

Audio / Video: We can provide a digital projector, speakers and screen. You bring the laptop. (Mac users need to have a ‘dongle’ to connect to the projector.)

Refreshments:

  • Dept. of French & Italian members: The French House can provide refreshments free of charge. Options include cheese & crackers, cookies & punch, or tea & coffee (whatever works with the time of day and your audience). More substantial refreshments can be provided if your event budget can afford it.
  • Other organizers: The French House can work with your budget to provide refreshments. When you fill out the form below, please let us how much you can spend (total, not per person) and we’ll do our best, which is often better than you can find elsewhere.

You are the event contact person and the event organizer. If there are charges for your event, the French House will provide an estimate and/or invoice to you and to the person you identify (below). We do not provide that person any other materials that s/he may need such as lists of attendees or presenters.
