It was home to the DePaul Blue Demons men's basketball team from 1956 until they moved to the Rosemont Horizon in 1980. The DePaul Blue Demons women's basketball team played all their home games at Alumni Hall from 1974 to 2000, while the men's team played occasional games there. The DePaul Blue Demons women's volleyball team also played their home matches at Alumni Hall.
The arena closed in 2000 and was torn down in 2001. The women's team moved to the DePaul Athletic Center and the men's team moved all games to their main arena, the Allstate Arena (formerly the Rosemount Horizon).
The land for Alumni Hall was repurposed for the new DePaul Student Center.
