The Arboretum

The Wellesley College Arboretum is available for ceremonies, weather permitting, and as the college schedule allows.  No tents or receptions are allowed in the arboretum.  Renters of the space must supply their own chairs and/or equipment needed for your ceremony, including a generator if needed, as there are no electrical outlets. The Houghton Chapel/Multifaith Center must also be booked when reserving the Arboretum space, as a rain location. Please note that the Arboretum will fit approximately 100 chairs in the space.

Handicapped Accessibility

The Arboretum is very challenging for handicap accessibility.  Arrangements may be made with an outside vendor to obtain a golf cart for transportation to and from the Arboretum grounds. For information regarding this, please contact Yolanda Tong, Coordinator for the Houghton Chapel and Multifaith Center by phone: (781) 283-2615.
