McNamara Alumni Center
An Award-Winning
Meeting & Event Venue

Modern and majestic, the McNamara Alumni Center is a bold architectural gem on the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota. Its design is inspired by the Minnesota landscape: wood, water and copper. With ten versatile rooms, all on the first floor, the center is a popular Minneapolis conference, gala and wedding reception venue. In 2014 more than 750 meetings and events were held here! Voted Best Meeting Venue by Minnesota Meetings & Events magazine 2007 to 2012, McNamara has many conveniences, including tunnel connections to an adjacent 500-car parking ramp and hotel, quick highway access and award-winning D’Amico Catering onsite.
