Wesleyan's Memorial Chapel is a Gothic revival brownstone building that seats up to 530 in traditional pews on two levels.  During renovations in 2003, a pipe organ was designed and built specially for the chapel. 

Located at 221 High Street, the multi-denominational chapel is air-conditioned and fully accessible to those with disabilities.  The rich acoustics of the chapel make it the perfect venue for a wide variety of events.  Weekly religious services are held during the academic year.  All types of civil or religious wedding ceremonies are permitted in the chapel.

The chapel is also a popular location for lectures and concerts.  In addition to the pipe organ that was designed and built for the renovated chapel, a baby grand piano is available for use during events.  The chapel is connected to the Patricelli '92 Theater by the Zelnick Pavilion.  This glass atrium offers a unique setting and is often used for receptions following events in the chapel.
