Alumni House Expansion

Alumni House Renovation & Expansion
The expanded Alumni House will be a welcoming gateway to campus and provide new space for events, alumni programming and staff. Key features include:

  • A new entrance with a dedicated reception area
  • A ballroom that will accommodate more than 400 people for a seated dinner and almost 800 for a standing reception or conference-style seating
  • An alumni lounge and business center
  • A professional catering kitchen
  • Beautiful gardens and terraces, including a Family Courtyard honoring multigenerational William & Mary families and other groups with deep connections to William & Mary

Alumni House Operations Endowment
A beautiful and historic building requires responsible care. The endowment will provide an annual revenue source for operations and routine maintenance. It will ensure that the Alumni House remains a quality facility in perpetuity.
