The Memorial Chapel staff was amazing to work with and I would highly recommend having your ceremony there. The Chapel is beautiful and I loved every part of my ceremony. I have no complaints. If you plan on getting married in peak season, book early to make sure you get the day/time you want. Perfect venue for Terps and other happy couples :)

Our ceremony was PERFECT!
Mel. and the other staff at UMD Chapel were amazing to work with. They were incredibly understanding, accommodating, flexible, and just simply kind. My fiance is a UMD alumn so we were able to get an almumni discount but moreso than that, the chapel is gorgeous (minimal decorating) and the staff is excellent!!!
