Iona College Begins Renovations to LaPenta School of Business and Hynes Institute for Entrepreneurship

The facilities will be available for the public to rent upon renovation completion.


Iona College in New Rochelle began renovations on The LaPenta School of Business and Hynes Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation this past December. Construction on the two new buildings on campus is expected to be completed by December 2019. The facilities will be available for rent by the public when the buildings are completed.

In addition to its new facilities, existing buildings received technology upgrades.

The Murphy Auditorium also has a projection screen that allows clients to project images onto the back wall of the stage.



Iona College is located at 715 North Ave., New Rochelle. The venues are within a 15-minute walk of the Metro North Station. Free parking is also available on campus. For more information about renting out venues at Iona College call 914-637-7790, or visit the Office of Conference Services website
