The Conference Center at SVF hosts several thousand visitors yearly. The Center is located in a separate part of the campus with conference halls and a hotel with 25 rooms. The school auditorium is also frequently used, especially when more space is needed. From June to mid August SVF can host as many as 200 guests, and the dormitories are used for additional accommodation.
The conferences and shorter courses are partly arranged by SVF but mostly by the arranging organization. These guests are mainly NGOs or voluntary organizations such as churches, interest groups, or similar organizations from the public sector. SVF also has a long tradition of international cooperation together with international partners, especially with the USA and in recent years with Germany.
