Gorecki Alumni Center

North Dakota



The University of North Dakota Gorecki Alumni Center is the epicenter of the University of North Dakota campus. In addition to housing the University of North Dakota welcome center and showcasing the university's magnificent art and pottery collections, the Gorecki Alumni Center is a premier event venue that is open to the community. Host a whimsical outdoor ceremony on the center's Great River Energy Terrace. The stone terrace is an inviting space perfect for intimate gatherings and your guests will be wowed by the simplistic beauty of the area's modern landscaping. Or say "I Do," showered in the natural light of the Gransberg Community Room, which provides a wonderful indoor alternative for your ceremony. The Gransberg Room boasts a soaring ceiling with three sides filled with floor-to-ceiling windows which brings the airiness and beauty of the outdoors in. After you've made it official, celebrate with dinner and dancing. The Gransberg Room can easily transform from ceremony to reception site. Or host your reception in the Kratt Grand Lobby and make a spectacular entrance down the grand staircase. The center's dedicated staff is excited to create a meaningful experience for you on your big day.
