To the extent permitted by applicable law, the University reserves the right to deny access to the Chapel to any person, group, or organization that intends to use it for a purpose that is in conflict with the religious teachings and/or doctrines of the Catholic Church or the School Sisters of Notre Dame.

Non-Catholic Wedding Ceremonies

We are available to host non-Catholic wedding ceremonies in several locations around campus including Doyle Formal inside of Doyle Hall, our Gazebo and under the NDMU archway.

Please note, if you choose an outdoor location for the ceremony, you must select an indoor backup location on campus in case of inclement weather.


Doyle Formal is available for receptions whether the wedding took place on campus or at another location.


  • 180 people without a dance area
  • 140 people with a dance area

Please note, wedding receptions held in Doyle Formal have to end by 10:00 pm, since the space is located on the first floor of a residence hall.
