About Governors Hall

At more than 1,970 square feet, Governors Hall is the centerpiece of the Miller-Ward Alumni House and a perfect setting for large receptions, banquets, and celebrations. Guests can socialize inside the hall, outside on the Oxford Porch, or in the adjacent interior spaces—the Walt Davis Room and Dooley’s Den. Whether you need open space for networking or a formal dinner setup, Governors Hall is the space for you.

Governors Hall pays tribute to more than eight decades of alumni leaders. Portraits of the past presidents of the Emory Alumni Board of Governors (now known as the Emory Alumni Board) decorate the walls of the house’s largest public space.
