Next door to one of the largest research universities in the world–a campus of 50,000 students–University Baptist Church’s building was designed as a hub of activity. Our sanctuary is a beautiful space for weddings and commitment ceremonies as well as music, theater, and public programs. Our lawn and portico provide a lovely green space on the busy corner of 13th and University Avenue in Dinkytown. We have room to share for renters, too. Tenants in our beautiful space have included not only other congregations but an alternative school, small non-profit organizations, writers, artists, musicians, labor organizers, wellness centers, basketball players (we have a gym under the sanctuary), consultants, and more.
