Dauch Alumni Center

The Dick and Sandy Dauch Alumni Center is home to the Purdue for Life Foundation, which serves as the cornerstone for engagement, development, and stewardship at Purdue and helps alumni and friends of the University stay connected, get involved, and give back.

Named for Richard (M’64, HDR M’99) and Sandy Dauch, who contributed $3 million toward its construction, the three-story, 67,000-square-foot building is located two blocks south of the Purdue Memorial Union on the University’s flagship campus. It opened in 2004 as both an alumni hub and a place where Purdue could showcase its many achievements.

Visitors are welcome, and free parking is available during your visit to the building. Attractions include:

  • Memorabilia displays
  • Boilermaker Special replica
  • Purdue space exploration exhibit
  • Library, banquet hall, and other gathering spaces

The center is located at 403 West Wood Street in West Lafayette, Indiana, and is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 765-494-2727.
