Ouachita Center Set-Up Options

Ouachita Center

The Ouachita Center is a multi-purpose facility that can accommodate various set-ups for a host of events.

The Ouachita Center features over 6,000 sq. feet of meeting and event space in the Carver Grand Hall. Break-out rooms can be sectioned individually on the east and west wings of the Carver Grand Hall space to provide up to six individual conference meeting rooms, each providing 532 sq. ft. per room. Each wing can also be opened to accommodate the space of three conference rooms, up to 1596 sq. ft. 

For event set-ups, our staff will need to secure a floor plan of your event needs in advance for set up of tables, chairs, and AV equipment. Floor plans must be finalized 30 days in advance of event date.

 

Network and Internet Connectivity in the Ouachita Center

Wireless Networking:  A wireless WIFI network is available throughout the Ouachita Center by request.  The wireless network provides internet connectivity to devices using the 802.11a,b,g, and n standards with covers the vast majority of phones, tablets, and laptop computers. Currently, the 802.11ac standard is not supported.

Wired Networking:  Wired network drops up to 1Gb/s are available and are recommended for any type of media streaming.  Wired connections must be requested when reservations are made for an event.  Ouachita Center technical staff will configure the connection based on the customer’s needs.  Note that while individual network drops operate at 1Gb/s, connectivity to the Internet is at lower rate, typically 100Mb/s depending on the network traffic load across the campus.  Direct fiber connections are not available at this time.
