About Etter-Harbin Alumni Center

Filled with lively Longhorn spirit, this elegant venue located on the UT campus has four unique event spaces and can accommodate even the largest celebrations! This private venue dates back to 1885 when the University of Texas alumni association was founded. Today, couples seeking an elegant site for their bridal shower, engagement party, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and wedding reception are welcomed into this private spot with their friends and family.

The Alumni Center is nestled along historic Waller Creek surrounded by 100 year-old oak trees that create the perfect setting for indoor & outdoor celebrations. Our ballroom can accommodate up to 350 guests with room for dancing and features large glass windows that overlook the creek. If rustic chic is more your style, our Main Lounge & Concourse is an excellent blend of southern charm and Longhorn pride.In this space, you and up to 200 of your guests will enjoy the unique Texas décor pieces such as authentic cowhide chairs and Lorenzo Ghiglieri bronzed buffalo statue. Couples can also move their wedding celebrations outdoors with the attached patios found in this space.

To provide a seamless and unforgettable culinary experience for you and your guests, we have partnered with the award-winning catering company, Rosemary’s Catering for all of your food and beverage needs.

    Thoroughly satisfied.

    We worked with Rachel Sommer to coordinate our wedding reception. Rachel was prompt and professional in her emails, and she was a delight during our in-person meetings. The venue itself was excellent, as was all the staff who were onsite. We have zero regrets!

    Gorgeous Venue!

    Phenomenal experience at this gorgeous venue! We used the outdoor back area for our ceremony, had cocktails on the wraparound terrace and held the reception in the Ballroom. Everything was absolutely perfect. The staff at the Alumni Center is wonderful to work with! I received so many compliments on how wonderful and gorgeous our wedding was!
