Alumni House

The Alumni House is the center of activity for the Office of University Advancement and the Northwest Foundation.

Alumni House

Building on Northwest's rich heritage, a loyal group of alumni in 1980 brought together their combined vision and resources to challenge all Bearcat alumni and friends to secure a permanent home for alumni activities and services. Those early efforts and the financial support of hundreds of alumni culminated in the purchase of the historic Townsend home located on College Avenue directly across from the main entrance to the campus, today known as the Alumni House.

Beautifully restored within its original architectural structure and high standards, the Alumni House is the focus for university and alumni activities, including many special occasions during the University's annual homecoming celebration, the holiday season and throughout the academic year. Annually, thousands of Bearcats enjoy the warmth and ambiance of the residence that has truly become the home of all Northwest alumni.

The Alumni House is owned and maintained by the Northwest Foundation, Inc. Purchase, renovations and repairs have all been made possible solely through private contributions.
