McNamara Alumni Center
Named one of the top places to get married in the US by Brides magazine, the McNamara Alumni Center is one of the Twin Cities' most unique and stunning wedding reception venues. Engaged couples looking for an elegant indoor wedding venue often turn to McNamara at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. The elements of water, wood, and copper from Minnesota’s landscape provide inspiration for the building's unique architecture and landscaped surroundings.
Two affordable wedding rental packages accommodate parties of up to 150 guests and up to 400 guests. Both packages can accommodate ceremonies too. Award-winning D’Amico Catering is our exclusive, on-site caterer with a kitchen and offices on-site. Conveniences include an adjacent 500-car parking ramp with event rates of $8-$10 per car; and the adjacent Graduate Minneapolis, with connection by tunnel and offering 304 sleeping rooms, including a honeymoon suite.
