Carvel Research & Education Center Home to Sussex County Cooperative Extension

Carvel's meeting rooms are used for CANR programs by priority, and to other related groups provided they are working with UD personnel. Outside groups not directly working with Carvel staff must get prior approval. Once approved, they must sign a contract and adhere to our guidelines below.
We encourage those seeking a full-service conference center to contact UD's Virden Center, in Lewes.
