About the Lyceum

Connecticut's Conference Center

Lyceum Conference CenterHartford’s bright and airy Lyceum has been a Frog Hollow neighborhood landmark since the 19th century.  Its sweeping arches and inviting spaces, paired with modern technological amenities, make it an ideal location for conferences, meetings and events.

The Lyceum Resource and Conference Center is dedicated to knowledge sharing, policy development and practical solutions to ending homelessness, creating affordable housing and developing strong communities.

Check out the Lyceum Website.

The Lyceum is a project of the Melville Charitable Trust, whose generous investments in organizations and projects in Connecticut and at the national level have led the way in finding and fighting the causes of homelessness.  The Trust’s restoration of the Lyceum and investment in the Frog Hollow neighborhood are building a stronger community -- offering a full range of resources for the neighborhood, the city and the state.

Operated by the Partnership for Strong Communities, the Lyceum is available to groups and individuals working on programs and initiatives to end homelessness, promote affordable housing and advance best practices in community development. Organizations, businesses or government agencies wishing to use the Lyceum may contact the Conference Center Manager at 860.244-0077 or .
