One of the best decisions my husband and I made while planning our wedding was to use the Campus Club as our venue. On one side of the reception room, you could see the Minneapolis skyline, on another side, the Mississippi River. We had 230 guests who were present and the venue had more than enough space to accommodate all guests.Sent on 10/18/2018
Moreover, Campus Club has a restaurant and bar, lobby, various rooms that you could use for whatever purposes, and of course, the terrace looking over the Minneapolis skyline and beautiful courtyard on the U of M campus. We had guests in all spaces of the Campus Club throughout the night. Many of our guests made comments of how much they loved our wedding and choice of venue as 1/3 of our guests appreciated a space just hanging out and away from the loud music during dance time.
Jenn and her team were responsive, accommodating, and extremely flexible. We made changes to our wedding planning constantly, up to the week of the wedding and still, Jenn did an AMAZING job giving us what we wanted. In addition, Jenn worked closely with our vendors and made sure everything was set for the day of the wedding. We are so thankful that we found a location that worked for us and would recommend the Campus Club to any bride and groom to-be!

Spectacular Winter Wedding
My husband and I were married at this event in February and it was just a fantastic experience. We were very new to planning a wedding and did not really know where to start. The event manager Jenn at the Campus Club was very helpful in guiding us through our event, providing multiple options for layout of the venue, and what all to include/do ourselves. We could even include our dog during the ceremony! The staff was professional and friendly at the event. The food was incredible! All people could talk about after the wedding was the steak. Highly recommend! It is a great price for the food, the view, and space. Many places to take pictures around as well, with the columns in front of Coffman, the view off the terrace, and more. Cannot say enough how gracious, helpful, and accommodating the event managers and staff were.Sent on 02/12/2019

Awesome Experience-Elegant and Classy
My daughter's wedding took place at Campus club. This was the best decision of the entire wedding decisions. First, communication with Jenn was great in regard to planning with vendors, etc.Sent on 01/31/2019
Food was fantastic including appetizers and desserts. All our guests were pleased with their meals and that doesn't happen often.
Further, You can't ask for a better location. The building is beautiful and at the sights from the 4th floor are amazing especially at night. Staff were professional and attended to our guests and their request. Brent and Nick were Awesome! We were able to use the entire 4th floor and all the rooms for bride and bridesmaids getting ready. The salon staff did the bride and bridesmaids hair and makeup in the Shephard room which couldn't be better. There is plenty of light in that room and Jenn provided us with full length mirrors. They were willing to provide us lunch. The ceremony took place at ABC room which is perfect for such an event. I recommend this place for any major event!
