Macalester College Briggs House is a guest house and campus event space for small gatherings. We host guests of the College in our four guest rooms, including campus speakers, job candidates, alumni, prospective students, parents of current students, and other visitors on campus for College business. Briggs House also serves as a campus gathering space, hosting College meetings, receptions, events, and celebrations.
Briggs House (formerly known as the Alumni House) was named in honor of Mary Kay Briggs who managed the House from 2005 until she passed away in January 2016. Mary Kay was beloved by many at Macalester, especially by the many students she employed and befriended, and she came to embody the welcoming spirit on Macalester’s campus.
