About Ford Alumni Center

The modern and welcoming Ford Alumni Center, located on the University of Oregon campus, provides a unique setting for your event. Nature-inspired decor features, combined with sustainable building practices and mixed-media artwork crafted by native Oregonians, create a warm and dynamic space for gathering. There are several breakout spaces, like the bright & airy four-story atrium, conference rooms of varying sizes, an alumni-focused lower lobby with interactive multimedia displays, and a rain garden courtyard & lawn. But the main event space, the contemporary and versatile Giustina Ballroom, is where the bulk of our events take place, which includes high school proms, gala fundraisers, conferences and lectures, career fairs, award ceremonies, weddings, and more! Built-in AV and sound systems allow for seamless use of technology for presentations, spoken remarks, or videoconferencing. A glass wall separates the Ballroom from the Atrium and Hearth Foyer, and can be opened for overflow or event milestones. The Ballroom also overlooks the Donald R. Barker Courtyard, and the doors can be opened for indoor-outdoor flow.
