About Us

Built in 1873, Kirkpatrick Chapel has served as the home for weddings, concerts, baptisms, memorials, lectures, classes and other programs for its entire history. The chapel, located on the Old Queens Campus of Rutgers University, is an architectural gem. Its sweeping arches, Tiffany windows and antique furnishings create an atmosphere of elegance and dignity.

The chapel welcomes couples of all faiths and offers them the flexibility of choosing their own officiant. The structure is equipped with an Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ, with brilliant sound 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 brides with amenities such as use of their organ or piano.
