Renovated in 1999, Perkins Chapel has served the SMU campus and community for 48 years. The Chapel is a brick and stone version of a type of church built in New England in the 18th and 19th centuries and the ideal location for private devotions, weddings, holy day celebrations, and recitals in Dallas.

Perkins Chapel hosts around 200 weddings each year. While approximately one-third of those who marry in the chapel are SMU students or alumni, the remainder are members of the larger Dallas community. Couples of all faiths have been married in the chapel since it opened in 1951, and some families have celebrated marriages through multiple generations. Perkins Chapel's central aisle, as well as its proximity to many reception sites, makes it particularly suitable for weddings.

Reservations for weddings at Perkins Chapel may be made in person or by telephone at 214.768.3035. The reservations office, located at 101-B Kirby Hall, is open 10:00 am–noon and 2:00–4:00 pm Mondays and Wednesdays.
