With Museum quality paintings hung in the large Rotunda foyer space, this major addition in the 1990 extension of the Etter-Harbin Alumni Center, adjoins the Main Lounge & Concourses by a flight of stairs to the Connally Ballroom and the Central Porch via the Rotunda.  With three large outdoor chandeliers on the Central Porch, a crisp white vaulted ceiling Rotunda, to the 5,600 square foot Ballroom with 270 degrees of floor to ceiling windows awash in natural light, this space is perfect for large gatherings of 420 seated or reception-style for 600+.  The majestic open skylight at the zenith of the Ballroom allows for day-lit daytime meetings and dancing under the stars for evening weddings.  Built-in projectors allow for presentations on hidden drop-down screens of corporate sponsorships or pictures of the celebrated couple.  

Two patio doors on the Ballroom lead to a wrap-around terrace to the west with access to the natural amphitheater that overlooks the iconic Waller Creek.  The picturesque backdrop for wedding ceremonies, the Regents Bridge is one of the oldest bridges on the University of Texas campus and also makes an ideal stretch for wedding guests to line-up for sparkler departures when the bride and groom make their final exit.
