Recently restored, Saint Paul's Chapel is a non-denominational ceremony space situated just steps from our front door. This architectural gem is one of the University's historic venues and can accommodate ceremonies of up to 400 guests. Couples who book Faculty House for their reception are eligible to enjoy our Perfect Pair Package, which offers a discount on the cost of renting the chapel.

For couples who prefer a more modern setting, Faculty House is also available for ceremonies. Both locations offer a seamless transition from ceremony to reception.
