Heinz Chapel Closed January, February, March and April 2015

                    The chapel is available for weddings January 3, 2015.

Heinz Memorial Chapel will be closed January 5 - May 10, 2015 and will reopen on May 11, 2015.  This is to allow for the installation of a climate control system. We will not be taking reservations for any events, including weddings, during that time.

The climate control system is an important part of plans for the preservation of the building, its pipe organ, and woodwork.  Thank you for your understanding as we undertake this historic project.

Who may be married at Heinz Chapel?

University of Pittsburgh students, alumni, faculty, and staff in good standing with the University and members of their immediate families may reserve the chapel for their wedding ceremonies.

Employees of the H.J. Heinz Company, UPMC, as well as members of any University-related board and members of their immediate families also may be married in the chapel. Immediate family includes grandparents, parents, brothers, and sisters.

Our goals are to make the chapel as accessible as possible and to ensure the most positive and pleasantly memorable experience for everyone using the chapel.
