The William & Mary Alumni House is located in the heart of historic Williamsburg on the campus of the College of William & Mary. Close to hotels, churches, restaurants, beautiful backdrops and historic charm, the W & M Alumni House has the best location in town!



Contrary to popular belief, you do not have to be a W&M Alumnus to rent the Alumni House. From intimate weddings of 40 people to large gatherings of over 250, we can do it all. Both indoor and outdoor space is available for ceremonies and receptions and we allow outside catering.



The original portion of the House, formerly known as the Bright House, dates from c. 1860 and was built on a tract of land once called, appropriately enough, “New Hope.” The House has since been renovated and added to in order to offer both modern and colonial charm for a venue unlike any other. If you are looking for something unique that is certain to wow your guests, look no further. Read less

We chose the Alumni House because we are Alumni of W&M and met and got engaged in Williamsburg. Even if we'd not been alumni, I would have loved everything about this venue. The grounds, the courtyards and the interior are all wonderful, and you don't have to worry about a rain plan because you can use indoor and outdoor space! Cristen was very helpful and easy to work with, and we're excited to visit so that we can see our wedding brick on the Plaza.

We had a Friday evening wedding reception at the Alumni House and it was fantastic! Scott was extremely helpful throughout the entire wedding planning process and even answered my questions that had nothing to do with the reception! He was extremely flexible about meeting with my fiance and me on our schedule and even a few last minute visits when family members were in town. He and his staff set up everything exactly the way I wanted and he made sure to go over everything with me in advance so that all of the space was utilized how I wanted. Our reception was beautiful! The great thing about this venue was the price. When we started searching around a lot of places didn't seem to include much for the price you paid. The Alumni House price included renting the entire building, tables, chairs, set up, and clean up. Plus, they coordinated the whole event and had staff to help my guests throughout the evening! It was worth every penny!!

We had a Sunday wedding reception at the Alumni House, so we were able to get it slightly cheaper than normal. However, we would recommend it no matter what the cost. It's certainly a unique venue in a colonial-style house with a small-to-medium banquet hall. They are extremely helpful and friendly and will provide everything you need on your day. The one downfall may be that they have a somewhat limited list of vendors that they allow, but the list they give you are the hands-down best vendors in the area, so there should be no trouble at all (and they will work with you if you have other ideas). Contrary to what the name implies, you don't need to be an alumnus from W&M- anyone can use this site. Highly recommended!

I absolutely love the decor and set-up of the Alumni House. It was fun to have food stations in different rooms and have guests explore different areas of the house. I also liked being able to having parts of the reception outside and parts inside. The event staff leader was very helpful in the planning process- she promptly answered my many questions and was able to meet with us when requested ahead of time. My one complaint was that the person I communicated with throughout the whole planning process was not at my wedding reception (some miscommunications, centerpieces were not set up as requested, despite my meticulous planning). I still highly recommend the Alumni House as a reception venue- truly a unique and beautiful place to have your wedding reception.

It was the perfect venue for our wedding! We were married out on the back bricks under a tent and Scott was super helpful coordinating everything. It was a breeze because everything was included, there were no worries about renting linens, chairs, etc. We used William and Mary catering, which was awesome, as well. My one gripe was that someone (I don't even know who? Scott?) tried to call my husband away during the last dance to finalize payments. Does not make for a happy bride :)
