Alumni House and Visitor Center

The Alumni House and Visitor Center is a gracious manor on the north end of the Allendale campus of Grand Valley State University. The building stands at the entrance to the campus just inside Lake Michigan Drive. It was presented by Grand Valley's Alumni Association in October 2000, and made possible by the financial contributions of alumni and friends of the University. The facility is available for use and rental by the University community of alumni, faculty and staff, students, parents, retirees, Board of Trustees, and departments of the University.

The Alumni House and Visitor Center is an elegant and convenient facility for individual and group activities for the entire Grand Valley campus community.  Features include a 150-seat dining room, sitting room, bride's room, conference room, patio, and four overnight guest rooms.  It also serves as an information center for visitors to the Allendale Campus. The professional and student staff provide a warm welcome to all guests and visitors.

Located almost midway between downtown Grand Rapids and the Lake Michigan shoreline, the building is ideally positioned near major expressways and in close proximity to Grand Valley campuses in Grand Rapids, Muskegon, and Holland.

The Allendale Campus offers such attractions as the Performing Arts Center that houses the Louis Armstrong Theatre, Calder Fine Arts Center, Lubbers Stadium and other varsity athletic venues, the Field House Arena and Recreation Center, Kirkhof Student Center, and the beautiful and challenging Meadows Golf Club.

The professional event staff of the Alumni House and Visitor Center is eager to help make your event a highlight of your visit to Grand Valley State University. Let us work with you in planning your next event. We hope you enjoy your visit to Allendale, to Grand Valley, and to the Alumni House and Visitor Center.
