Getting Married At Your Alma Mater (College and University Venues in Louisville KY)

College is consider an important time of life, not just for education and resume development, but also for meeting people. It is prime time for finding a soul mate—and long after graduation we tend to bump into and connect with fellow alumni. So it’s not surprising that many engaged couples wish to tie the knot on campus.

A drawback that you might encounter is that most colleges only welcome students, alums, or faculty. They may not have an elegant venue, they may have alcohol restrictions, or more likely, their facilities may be busy with students 24/7, leaving no spare time for outside rentals - so you might have to double-check the college school calendar. It might be available for outside events on weekends. Some campuses rent spaces for non-student events during summer only.

With all these roadblocks, why do couples still opt for campuses that host weddings? I guess there’s this enticing connection if it’s your alma mater. And people are always looking for alternate venues. Here are some campuses that offer a rental facility for your wedding.

Weddings at The University Club
Located in the northeast corner of Belknap campus, near Cardinal Boulevard, the Club is close to downtown Louisville. They have a professional catering and event planning staff who are happy to coordinate all details of your special event. Alumni, faculty, and staff of the University, including retirees, are all eligible for membership in the Club.
