Dedicated on October 6th 1952, the non-denominational and picturesque Memorial Chapel stands in honor of members of the University of Maryland community who lost their lives serving our country in the United States Armed Forces. As an icon at the University of Maryland, the Memorial Chapel stands as a symbol of unity and serenity. The location of about 1200 activities a year, the doors are open annually to over 80,000 visitors of all faiths, cultures and walks of life.
Serving as the center for religious life for the campus, it is also a great venue for lectures, concerts, services, convocations, commencement ceremonies, and weddings. Activities in the Chapel need not be religious in nature, but all must be the type of event that respects the integrity of a place of worship.
