Built in 1873, Kirkpatrick Chapel has served as the home for weddings, concerts, baptisms, memorials, lectures, classes, and other programs for its entire 139-year history. The chapel, located on the Old Queens Campus of Rutgers, is an architectural gem. Its sweeping arches, Tiffany windows, and antique furnishings create an atmosphere of elegance and dignity. It welcomes couples of all faiths and offers them the flexibility of choosing their own officiant. The chapel is equipped with an Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ, whose brilliant sound is guaranteed to make your wedding ceremony unforgettable. The Kirkpatrick Chapel accommodates up to 650 guests. As elegant as it is affordable, the chapel can be booked on Friday evenings, Saturdays, and Sundays, and their staff can help provide you with amenities such as use of their organ or piano.
