Welcome to the Alumni Memorial Union Event Services website.
Our intention is to provide a central location for resources related to planning and executing successful events on Marquette University's campus.
AMU Event Services collaborates with several campus offices, including Sodexo Dining Services/Catering, Facilities Planning and Management, Office of Engagement & Inclusion, Office of the Registrar, Parking Services and University Special Events. Each of these contributors plays an active role in events that take place on campus.
From internal meetings to seated dinners, this site offers the resources, information and guidance needed to create a high-quality experience for any audience.
COVID-19 Guidelines and Recommendations for Events held in Marquette University Facilities
The Alumni Memorial Union staff is committed to providing a safe environment for our students, faculty, staff and guests during the COVID-19 pandemic. University leaders are meeting regularly to monitor the spread of COVID-19, and the university will follow state and local health guidelines. As these guidelines evolve, reservations may be modified.
Phase 5 of the Marquette University Recovery Plan incudes that all campus spaces have returned to normal capacity. Common areas can be utilized as were pre-pandemic.
COVID-19 Recovery Team approval is no longer required for campus events. All events should follow City of Milwaukee Health Department guidance.
Events can include food consumption. Pre-packaged or plated meals are best, but buffet style self-serve is now allowed.
Please be aware that MASKS are required while indoors at Marquette University. We support guidance from health officials that mask wearing indoors decreases the spread of COVID-19. We encourage members of our community who are unvaccinated, immunocompromised or at high risk for COVID-19 complications to continue wearing a mask while indoors. Additionally, now that anyone 12 and older is eligible to be vaccinated in Wisconsin, Marquette strongly encourages all students, faculty and staff to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 aligns with our Catholic, Jesuit mission, and protects you, your family and friends and our broader Marquette communities.
Visitors to campus are required to follow on-campus guidelines for COVID safety and mitigation. Each department/unit should keep a log of their visitors and screen their visitors to aid in contact tracing. COVID Cheq screening is only available to individuals with a Marquette email.
