Imagine expanding Bradley Hall to the west to house an Alumni Center that overlooks a landscaped Alumni Quad. Inside this architecturally expressive facility will be a place where alumni and their families can get together with current students and faculty. It will be a place where alumni can come home—a home away from home

Stay connected with classmates, friends, and professors. Plug in and catch up over our network. Energize business meetings in conference rooms wired for success. Relax before the game or concert. Touch the past with Bradley memories and memorabilia. The Alumni Center will be your place back on campus … a place where you will always belong.

Floor Plans

Imagine… a grand entry welcoming alumni, students and visitors with stunning, rotating displays that tell the Bradley story. A celebration of Bradley's proud heritage, our alumni, and the student experience will provide an engaging environment. Adjacent to the Hall of Pride on the ground floor is a reception area where alumni, faculty and students can meet and chat. A cozy library will accommodate the impressive collection of alumni, student and faculty publications and creative productions. It will be the perfect environment to showcase the history and tradition of Bradley University.


Imagine… with more than 60,000 living alumni, the amount of important work the Office of Alumni Relations conducts each year to provide programs, activities, and support services to Bradley's alumni. The second floor is dedicated to helping to make those activities happen with offices for the Alumni Relations staff, a special conference room for BUAA board meetings and other special university discussions, and office space for visiting alumni.


Imagine… coming home for a special event to be held in the new Alumni Hall on the third floor of the Hayden-Clark Alumni Center. With 4,560 square feet of banquet space, this formal reception area will seat up to 300 guests. Walk through the doors to the adjoining veranda for a magnificent view of what will eventually be a green, park-like campus to the west that's ideal for outdoor receptions and special events.
