The Most Unique Minneapolis Meeting & Event Venue

Meeting and event planners love the McNamara Alumni Center! This premier event venue on the University of Minnesota Minneapolis campus is a favorite venue for conferences, galas, holiday parties and wedding receptions. McNamara’s architecture is stunning--inspired by the Minnesota landscape of wood, water and copper. With ten unique meeting rooms, all on the first floor, McNamara has many conveniences including an adjacent 500-car parking ramp with tunnel connection and the Graduate Hotel also connected by tunnel. Planners love that award-winning D’Amico Catering is onsite and that McNamara is just 2 Light Rail stops from downtown Minneapolis. In a typical year, the McNamara Alumni Center hosts more than 700 events and averages 4.8 out of 5.0 stars for our customer service.
