and Scheduling

Built in 1962 as a memorial to alumni killed in the nation’s wars, the UNM Alumni Memorial Chapel has served the campus community in joyful and trying times. Dedicated to UNM’s fallen soldiers of World Wars I and II, Korea, Viet Nam, Iraq, and Afghanistan, whose names are listed on its south wall, the chapel is a place of both reflection and remembrance. Thousands of weddings and numerous memorials have taken place within its walls.

Elegant in its Southwestern simplicity, the University of New Mexico's Alumni Memorial Chapel is the ideal location for weddings, vow renewals and memorial services. The UNM Alumni Memorial Chapel is non-denominational and available to students, faculty, staff, and alumni for weddings and memorial services.
