Campus Facility Rental

Schedule your event on Starr’s historic Albion campus today!

Founded by Floyd Starr in 1913, our historic Albion, Michigan campus was the home to our residential services program. The Albion Campus remains the proud home of our human resources, finance, marketing, and advancement offices, and also features a recreational center, the Chapel-in-the-Woods, Brueckner Museum and Art Gallery, Montcalm Lake, 305 acres of natural beauty, and the original barn and homes of Floyd Starr. It truly is a beautiful place for Starr to call home, and to continue Uncle Floyd’s legacy is an honor we cherish.

“Beauty is a silent teacher.”

Floyd Starr, Founder & 1st President of Starr Commonwealth
