McNamara Alumni Center. A stunning spacious knockout.
Featured in a national car commercial and MTV music video, the McNamara Alumni Center is an architectural gem on the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota. Memorial Hall soars 85 feet tall and is lined with 6 miles of wood, 75,000 square feet of copper and a 150 foot long water feature. It is a gorgeous and unique setting for wedding ceremonies and receptions. Ten meeting rooms, all on the first floor, make the McNamara Alumni Center an ideal fundraiser and party venue and popular Twin Cities conference center. Award-winning D’Amico Catering, adjacent 500-car parking ramp and adjacent The Graduate Hotel are other valuable amenities. Event planners have awarded the McNamara Alumni Center with numerous accolades: including best high-tech venue by unique venues 2015, best venue website by unique venues 2016, best university venue by Minnesota Meetings & Events 2016, best meeting venue by Minnesota Meetings & Events magazine 2007 to 2012, and top 50 places to get married by Brides Magazine 2015.
