Sigma Xi Center Conference Facilities and Rental Information
The Sigma Xi Center houses the administrative offices of Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Society as well as conference facilities. It is located in the heart of Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, near Interstate 40 between Chapel Hill and Raleigh (Davis Drive Exit 280). The Center is about 10 minutes from the Raleigh-Durham Airport and less than one mile west of the Radisson Research Triangle Park (previously Radisson Governors Inn) on N.C. Highway 54. Of modern glass and steel design, on a 12-acre wooded site, the facility is technologically advanced and architecturally striking. A dramatic spiral staircase in the lobby is among its signature features.
The Center conference facilities can accommodate up to 225 people in its multiuse auditorium, which can be divided into three meeting spaces. Additional rooms are available for smaller meetings. The front and rear plazas of the building make convenient gathering places for meeting breaks and social events.
