Alumni Hall, also known as Chapel Hall, is a historic multipurpose building located on the campus of Alfred University at Alfred in Allegany County, New York. It is a large frame structure built in 1851-1852 with what has been described as Alfred's most important Greek Revival features.[2] The three-story, 52-foot-wide (16 m) by 102-foot-long (31 m) rectangular structure has a red terra cotta roof. Designed and built by Maxson Stillman, it features a one of a kind 12 foot pine weathervane in the shape of a quill pen.[2] It was the fourth structure built for the Alfred Academy and housed a chapel, auditorium and lecture, recitation, library and lyceum rooms for college and community use.[3] It is now used primarily to house the Admissions Department.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]
