Host your next event in the Campus Center
Who can reserve space
The short answer is anyone is welcome to host their next meeting or event in the Campus Center. However, there are different reservations processes and costs for different groups.
Student organizations can reserve Campus Center spaces for free, so long as they are properly registered with the CUBE Student Organization Center. Once registered, all space requests must be submitted through The Spot for full consideration. The only officer position permitted to submit events for student organizations is the designated reservationist.
Please be advised that due to the comprehensive nature of the process, it is possible to receive multiple approvals for specific aspects of an event and, ultimately, have the request denied. Members of student organizations are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the event and activity registration process through the resources provided by the CUBE Student Organization Center team.
Student interest groups who are in the process of forming a student organization will be able to reserve space for three low-risk organizational meetings within a 60-day period before full registration will be required to request space.
Departments and schools are defined as university departments and/or offices meeting to conduct business directly related to their function, operations, or mission of the university. IUPUI departments and schools can reserve space 13 months in advance. Information tables are free to reserve, and all other space reservations will incur fees.
Reservation requests from faculty and staff members on behalf of IUPUI schools and departments should be submitted online by accessing 25Live on One.IU or by using the Campus Center event form. Standard reservation requests (that do not meet the definition of a special event and/or do not require additional personnel, special equipment, or additional coordination) must be submitted a minimum of seven (7) days prior to the reservation date. Reservation requests submitted less than seven (7) days in advance may not be accommodated and the request may be denied. Reservation requests submitted online will be reviewed in the order they are received. All requests will be reviewed within three (3) business days from the date they are received.
Requests may also be made by phone, email, or walk-in. Please be advised that all requests submitted online are simply requests—not confirmed reservations—and can be denied by the Campus Center Event Services team. Meeting and event organizers should wait until a reservation confirmation has been received via email before continuing any planning and marketing of the event.
Campus Center space may be reserved by groups or organizations unaffiliated with IUPUI so long as their purpose/mission does not contradict the mission/purpose of IUPUI. Decisions related to any possible contradiction is at the discretion of the Campus Center. Space may not be used for non-university fundraising or political initiatives. Non-university organizations can submit requests by contacting the Campus Center Event Services team at 317-278-8511 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special event reservations
We have established procedures to ensure we provide appropriate support and planning for your special events. Please read the definition below to see if your event could be considered a special event. If it does, you must complete a special event application, which can impact the time needed to process your reservation request. Events hosted annually that meet the definition of a special event will be required to submit an application on an annual basis.
