Sherwood Boehlert Hall and Conference Center
Sherwood Boehlert Hall and Conference Center (formerly New Hall) was completed in August of 1999 and dedicated in honor of former congressman Sherwood Boehlert (a Utica College alumnus) on October 12, 2007. Boehlert Hall features suite-style living with either double or single accommodations for 150 students. Returning, upperclass students have the opportunity to live in this state-of-the-art facility.
Free cable hook-up, on-campus phone service, and college network service including Internet capabilities, are provided in each room. Other amenities, such as air-conditioning, an elevator, a full kitchen on each floor, and several large lounges are also provided. A laundry room, TV room, and pool table are located in the basement of the facility for student use.
Also located in Boehlert Hall is a conference center. On and off-campus groups and organizations use the facility for meetings, conferences, and training. During the academic year the groups can only use the conference center. For more information on reserving this room, visit the reserving facilities page.

The Gay Alliance
The SafeZone program was created to develop, enhance and maintain environments in workplaces, schools and other social settings that are culturally competent and supportive to LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning) individuals, as well as straight, cisgender people who care about diversity, equality and inclusion.
What is a SafeZone?
A safe zone or a safe space is a place where all people feel welcome and safe. It may be a room, a car, or an entire college campus. The Gay Alliance SafeZone program aims to increase the awareness, knowledge, and skills for individuals and address the challenges that exist when one wants to advocate for their LGBTQ peers, family members, friends and co-workers. Creating safe zones or safe spaces is a proactive step that schools, agencies and corporations can take to create welcoming, inclusive spaces so that all people are empowered to reach their full potential.
