How do I reserve a space?
Some Conditions to consider...
All reservations of University Recreation outdoor spaces must also have the event approved by the Outdoor Events Coordinating Committee (Grounds Use) of the University. A reservation with University Recreation only secures the right to move forward with the planning of the event. Forms and information on Grounds Use may be found on the website of Student Union and Activities. No event may be held without University approval.
All reservations that are approved are considered approved “weather permitting” and that conditions exist that would not cause damage to fields, play spaces or areas. Outside Rentals do not come with "Inclement Weather" accommodations.
