Catering
The McGovern Alumni Center welcomes events that require catering. Due to our licensed kitchen, all events must be catered by one of our listed caterers. It is the sole responsibility of the customer to secure their caterer.

Bar Service
The McGovern Alumni Center works with a contracted bar service to accommodate events that request a bar service. Please work with your Event Coordinator to arrange this.
