Alumni Center

Welcome, all Redbirds -- to a place for you. Illinois State University is proud to offer our alumni, students, and friends a place to gather and connect with their campus home. We invite you to stop by to chat around the fireplace and learn the latest information about the University. Visit and take advantage of the spacious meeting rooms with state-of-the-art technology and plan to host your next meeting, reunion or workshop in your Alumni Center.


Fall 2007, during Illinois State University’s Sesquicentennial, renovations began on the University’s first, on-campus home for alumni.

The Illinois State University Alumni Center, located at 1101 N. Main in Normal provides an official gateway to campus and state-of-the-art meeting facilities for alumni and members of the University community. This facility is the official entry point for those visiting Illinois State University. Alumni will especially find the center inviting, as its design incorporates space for everything from group meetings to casual conversation around the fireplace. The Alumni Center is a special place for Redbirds and friends to gather and become reacquainted with their campus home.

The Illinois State University Alumni Center is designed to serve the over 235,000 alumni of Illinois State University, current students, faculty/staff, and the Bloomington/Normal community. Approximately 100 staff members from the Office of the University Advancement Vice President, Alumni Engagement, the Illinois State University Foundation, Development, Marketing and Communications, and extended university offices are located in the facility.

Use of the Alumni Center is managed by the Conference Services unit. Additional information on how to reserve a room is available online or by contacting scheduling at (309) 438-2403.

The Alumni Center's presence on campus is a home to our active alumni, increases the visibility of the Alumni Association, and strengthens the bond between alumni and the campus community.
