The University of Maryland Memorial Chapel is a serene and picturesque wedding ceremony venue situated in College Park, Maryland. Within the grounds of the campus, this romantic chapel venue is characterized by red-brick walls, manicured gardens, and open parkland. Imagine your I-dos to the background music of a traditional pipe organ or within the gardens surrounded by blooming flowers. The Memorial Chapel is a multi-faith facility that welcomes people from all backgrounds.

Facilities and Capacity

The University of Maryland Memorial Chapel is composed of two chapel venues and a variety of garden ceremony spaces. The Main Chapel, which can host up to 300 guests, is an elegant red-brick structure that is distinguished by white columns and a belltower. Set against the church your wedding photos are sure to be phenomenal. This backdrop is bordered by a bright green lawn and mature trees that match the impressive height of the chapel. Walk down the aisle under a vaulted ceiling and seat your guests comfortably within the classic pews. The Garden Chapel is a smaller, more rustic venue and seats up to 100 guests. Filled with natural light that streams through large windows, the traditional interior gives this chapel a cozy atmosphere. The baby grand piano is a charming addition to this intimate wedding setting. Couples may also choose from the many garden spaces on the Memorial Chapel grounds if they wish to have an outdoor ceremony.

    Great Wedding Day!

    My experience at the Memorial Chapel was excellent. The staff, made my wedding extremely memorable. They are patient, kind and accommodating. They were there to answer any questions, any time of the day and night! I knew I was in great hands from day one! The Chapel manager and the three ladies there to assist me are super professional and knowledgeable. You can tell that they love their jobs because they make it super easy for the bride and groom to have the best day of their life. And how could I forget to mention the beauty of the Chapel - both sides, the Main and the Garden. Either space doesn't need much decorating, it's beauty speaks for itself. I highly recommend having your wedding at the Memorial Chapel.

    Amazing Venue and Experience!

    The Chapel at UMD was the most fabulous ceremony space for our wedding. The space itself is absolutely beautiful, however, what made our experience was the team we had at the chapel. We worked with Denise, Salem and Kailey. They were super responsive and Denise specifically, helped us sort out a huge issue we had a few weeks before the wedding, and completely saved the day! Everyone at the chapel was absolutely incredible, and helped us every step of the way and on the wedding day. They were so kind, helpful and calming. The experience was absolutely incredible and I would recommend this venue to anyone!
