Adams Alumni Center

The Jayhawk Welcome Center is scheduled to open early 2023. Construction will take place throughout 2021 and 2022, and the Adams Alumni Center will remain closed during that time.


The Adams Alumnic Center’s professional, dedicated team members believe world-class hospitality enriches the Jayhawk experience. We deliver outstanding service and modern amenities in an unrivaled, distinctively classic setting. 

Adams Lounge

With an exceptional view of campus, including the Campanile, Adams Lounge is a great multi-use room that can be used as spillover for large events, house displays or set for buffets.

All American Room

Paying tribute to KU’s All-American student athletes, the walls are adorned with John Martin’s hand-painted murals. This room can also be rented in conjunction with neighboring McGee and Bruckmiller.

Bruckmiller Room

As one of the largest rooms in the center, the Bruckmiller has removable wall panels in the McGee and All-American rooms for an even larger space.

Carruth Conference Room

With seating for up to ten, Carruth is the perfect room for a small gathering or professional meeting. Request any of our amenities to take your function to the next level.

McGee Room

Adjacent to the All-American and Bruckmiller rooms, the McGee Room is a simple and elegant setting for small meetings, receptions and dinners. Expand your event options by renting one or both neighboring rooms.

McGinnis Library

Housing historical collections, sit and read oral histories from some of KU’s brightest minds, along with other rich texts. This room serves as a great pre-function area for the adjoining Paul Adam Lounge.

Music Room

Outfitted with a piano and an extensive music collection, the Music Room is the ideal location for small gatherings, meetings and interviews in a comfortable and relaxed setting.

Paul Adam Lounge

Located on the first floor, the Paul Adam Lounge is an intimate space perfect for small meetings, dinners and receptions. Accented with dark wood and a gas fireplace, this room is both cozy and elegant.

Seymour Pub & Brook Dining Room

Rich wood panels, a fireplace and cozy chairs create a lodge-like atmosphere. Incorporated into the decor are wooden spindles and doors were salvaged from the Old Fraser Hall.

Summerfield Room

Being one of the largest in the center makes this room a versatile choice for all your event needs including dinners, receptions and meetings. A walkout patio adds a special touch of KU history with Old Fraser Hall “widow walk railings.”

Lobby & Common Areas

An elegant entryway and spacious hallways add to the ambience of your event. Hallways feature historical photographs from KU through the years. Outside the Adams Alumni Center, guests can enjoy the Borden Plaza which is also a popular area for guests to gather.
