Schulze Grand Atrium

The Schulze Grand Atrium at the University of St. Thomas' downtown Minneapolis campus is a bright and spacious gathering space. It's an ideal location for dinners, banquets, lectures, galas, receptions and more.

The Schulze Grand Atrium is the largest dining gathering space on the Minneapolis campus of St. Thomas. It's located in the School of Law building, built in 2005. The space offers stunning downtown Minneapolis views and features a grand staircase leading to the upper levels of the building.

The nearby classrooms and meeting rooms on the upper floors make this a great space for conferences and seminars.

Also located in the School of Law building is the Chapel of St. Thomas More, just steps away from the Schulze Grand Atrium. This allows for an easy transition between a wedding ceremony and reception. The chapel seats 75 guests.

Hourly visitor parking is available in the parking ramp at 11th Street and Harmon Place, connected to the School of Law building via skyway. There are 10 hotels located within a six-block radius, making the venue an easy walk for your event attendees.
