Mary Ann Wolfe Theater

The Mary Ann Wolfe Theater is a multi-purpose facility that seats approximately 300 and plays host to a variety of different concerts, plays, and other events. Built in 1978, the theater eventually converted from a lecture hall into a performing arts space which began hosting not only theater events but regular campus activities as well. Currently the Mary Ann Wolfe Theater is home to not only student and community functions but also serves as a classroom.

Social gatherings and weddings

Perfectly manicured gardens with a lake for lasting memories and stunning photographs. The Wolfe University Center is North Miami's best kept secret when it comes to social gathering and wedding receptions in the North Miami/Aventura area. Our facility features a convertible grand ballroom, various scenic terraces, and spaces for smaller gatherings. When you book your event at the Wolfe University Center, you will find amenities that you won't find anywhere else.

  • The room is yours for the entire day, so you don't have to worry about other events running late, and taking valuable preparation time.
  • You may use our in-house caterer, Panther Premiere Events & Catering, or bring your own without any penalties. You can also pick from our list of preferred caterers.
  • We feature discounts for non-profit organizations and competitive pricing for the general public that includes all tables, chairs, staging and dance floor.
