Alumni Memorial Chapel

A place to celebrate, remember and commemorate. The Chapel is a placeholder of significant events in the lives of alumni. Its simple elegance complements any occasion, public or personal.

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.
