The William and Carol Koester Alumni Pavilion is a unique spot on UToledo's Main Campus to gather and share your Rocket Pride with fellow fans. Thanks to the leadership philanthropy of William ('59, '60) and Carol Koester, and the generous gifts from alumni and friends, this facility will continue to serve the UToledo alumni and the UToledo community well into the future.


The Alumni Pavilion honors our outstanding alumni, past Alumni Association presidents and donors. It also serves as a meeting place for alumni, community events and of course, our Pregame Parties.
