Weddings: a unique setting for your special day

What could be more romantic for devoted IU alumni than holding your wedding at the DeVault Alumni Center? Experience a day you’ll remember forever, with breathtaking views of IU’s iconic football and basketball stadiums, plus an atmosphere rich in the traditions and history of IU and the IUAA. To the south of the building, the rolling hills and dozens of mature trees offer additional photographic possibilities.

Cost: $630 for IUAA members; $700 for nonmembers.
Includes access to all rental spaces inside the building—the Kelley Dining Room, Dutton Living Room, Inskeep Library, Metz Boardroom, Rich/Jones Boardroom, and the Alumni Boardroom. Outdoor spaces can be rented for an additional fee.

Facilitator fee: The $15-per-hour facilitator fee includes an on-site facilitator who is available to coordinate vendor deliveries and pickups and to assist in setting up each space to your requested specifications. If more than one facilitator is required—often the case for weddings—additional facilitator fees will be charged.

Additional fees: May be charged for the rearrangement of inside furniture, outdoor furniture rentals, parking attendants, and maintenance.
