Rent MCN's Conference Room

The Facility

The Minnesota Council of Nonprofits is located in the Midtown Commons complex, two blocks east of Hwy 280 in the Midway area of Saint Paul. The building is 2314 University Avenue West, Suite 20 in Saint Paul. We're at the Raymond Avenue rail stop of Metro Transit’s Green Line and on various bus routes. Limited parking is available in the lot on the east side of the building. Please do not park in the spaces reserved for Carleton Place Lots at any time.

MCN’s Nonprofit Learning Center includes two rooms that may be combined into one large space. The Lake Room (east side) is approximately 23 feet wide x 32 long. The River Room (west side) is approximately 37 wide x 27 long. The room capacity for nonprofit rentals is 35 attendees, regardless of whether you rent one or both rooms. Room set up is the renter’s responsibility.

Rental of the rooms includes the use of ceiling mounted projectors (one per room), microphones and internet connectivity. Other equipment usage may require payment of an additional fee. Because MCN staff must be on-site to support use of equipment, room requests must include your planned AV usage. 

While food is allowed, the conference room is self-service. A hospitality bar is located in the foyer and may be used by guests; please seek staff assistance with the coffee brewer. Please bring your own coffee grounds and tea bags. Set up, clean up and resetting of the room are the responsibility of the renter. Please plan your time accordingly.
