Event spaces

KU Student Housing offers additional meeting space you may reserve for participants that ranges from small meeting rooms to auditoriums. Any summer conference coordinator may reserve meeting space online. Priority is given to groups with a completed contract on file.

Although each building has commons spaces, including lobbies, lounges, and study spaces, KU Student Housing also offers several conference room and classrooms equipped with wireless internet. You may reserve meeting space in any open building, regardless of where guests are staying. Reservations are first-come, first-served.

KU Student Housing also can connect you with campus partners to arrange for on-campus space. On-campus space is reserved, maintained, and billed by those units, not by KU Student Housing.
