Looking to host your wedding ceremony here on our beautiful campus? The Chapel of De La Salle and His Brothers is available to Manhattan College employees and alumni for wedding ceremonies.
The Office of Conference Services typically accommodates weddings taking place during mid-June through mid-August on a first-come, first-serve basis. Your date selection will be reviewed to determine if the facilities are available. Requests for weddings are typically made a year in advance.
Marriage preparation and the ceremony is typically performed by a priest that you have formed a prior relationship with. It is preferred that you make arrangements with your priest to officiate your wedding here on campus.
Your priest is responsible for coordinating arrangement with the Archdiocese.
Step 1: The priest you have arranged to officiate your wedding must reach out to our local parish, St. John's Visitation, by emailing our local Father. Our office will provide you with his contact information after contract signature and initial deposit.
Step 2: Once our local Father replies back with a confirmation, your priest is to forward this email to our office.
There is a non-refundable rental fee which covers the use of the Chapel. The Chapel rental fee is due once our office confirms the dates are available for both the wedding and rehearsal.
Upon receipt of a contract and invoice, the initial payment will be due within seven days to reserve the Chapel. The remaining balance will be due a few weeks prior to your ceremony date. Payment can be submitted in the form of mailing a personal check or online via our credit card portal.
No request should be assumed confirmed without a written confirmation and a paid in full invoice from the Office of Conference Services.
Additional fees include the required assistance of a sacristan and any musical needs. The cost and payment terms of these fees are communicated by the associated departments coordinating these efforts.

Campus Enhancements & Renovations
Manhattan College utilizes the summer months and school breaks to schedule renovations, repairs, and enhancement projects to our buildings and grounds on campus. When booking your wedding, these schedules for work and projects may not be known. While we cannot anticipate these projects in advance, we do want you to understand the potential exists that some work may impact buildings and grounds aesthetically. Be assured, we will do our best to minimize any inconveniences to you and your guests. We will notify you in advance of any projects, as soon as we learn of them.
