The Miller-Ward Alumni House is where Emory cherishes its past, celebrates its present, and welcomes its future. With more than 7,600 square feet of space and an easily-accessible location adjacent to Emory's beautiful campus, the Miller-Ward Alumni House is the top choice for your next event. Our mission is to connect alumni to the university and to each other, build Emory traditions and culture, foster student and alumni engagement, provide space to serve the diverse needs and interests of our community, and create opportunities for investment in Emory's future.

With reasonable, competitive rates, it is the ideal destination for hosting a variety of events—from a business meeting or conference, to a wedding or an elegant party. The Miller-Ward Alumni House is the right space to celebrate a special moment… when’s yours?


Named for legendary Emory deans of alumni Judson "Jake" Ward 33C 36G and H. Prentice Miller 27C 28G, this premier event facility is adjacent to Houston Mill House and incorporates the former Scholars Press building.
