Stadium Village neighborhood of the University of Minnesota
The McNamara Alumni Center is located in Stadium Village, a dynamic University of Minnesota neighborhood. With numerous restaurants, hotels, coffee shops and convenient stores, the alumni center is a great venue for conferences and events.
While the neighborhood’s moniker derives from Memorial Stadium, torn down in 1992 and where the McNamara Alumni Center now stands, today the Minnesota Golden Gophers football team takes the field at the beautiful and adjacent TCF Bank Stadium. Williams Arena and Mariucci Arena, home of Golden Gopher basketball and hockey respectively, are also located across the street from the alumni center.
Need to run an errand or two between conference sessions? Visit the nearby Walgreens, which offers groceries, snacks and candy. Walking distance you'll find the University of Minnesota Bookstore offering a wide selection of University of Minnesota apparel. Sally’s Saloon is also a popular and lively restaurant, with outside seating and views of the Alumni Center.
