Request Facilities Rental Information
The First Unitarian Society of Ithaca (FUSIT) offers a variety of handicap accessible accommodations for hosting your event. Whether you require a large or small space, you’ll find that we will do our best to fulfill your needs.
We have space for weddings, workshops, anniversary celebrations, seminars, luncheons, concerts and recitals, and Bar or Bat Mitzvahs.
Rental Spaces which are currently available include the Sanctuary, Parlor, Second Floor Annex Demi-Social Room, Arch Room, as well as various classrooms. These can accommodate anywhere from 12 to 300 people depending upon your needs.
Our Sanctuary has been the site of countless weddings since 1895 and many commitment ceremonies over the past four decades. Now that same-sex marriage is legal in New York State we are delighted to offer our sanctuary for marriages for ALL couples.
Our spaces are rented in 4 hour increments. Current rates are available by calling the Congregational Administrator at (607) 273-7521, ext. 21. Although our kitchen is not inspected by the City of Ithaca for commercial use, it can be used to heat foods and many local caterers are familiar with our facilities.
