Host your next event in the Campus Center

The IUPUI Campus Center is a 304,387-square-foot facility with 17 spaces that can be reserved for meetings and special events. Although we are not a full-service conference center or banquet facility, our staff is committed to providing a high level of service to ensure a seamless meeting and/or event experience. Space reservation and coordination for meetings, events, and information tables is managed by Campus Center and Student Experiences’ Event Services team.

General event Policies

For appropriate accommodations to be provided, reservation requests must be submitted at least 7 days in advance. Campus Center Event Services may approve exceptions on an individual basis.

Campus Center Event Services reserves the right to assign, and if necessary, reassign space for a meeting or an event based on the size of the group, type of program, requested room configuration, and/or space available to assure the maximum and most appropriate utilization of space.

Event hosts will be responsible for the behavior of their members and guests. Individuals or groups will be responsible for any damages to or theft of any Campus Center property that is determined to have occurred during or as a result of their event. Damages will be charged to the individual(s) or group(s) responsible.

Campus Center Event Services is not responsible for any items left in the facility or meeting/event spaces after an event has ended.

Campus Center Event Services does not offer storage for items (including those that are shipped) prior to a meeting or event. If storage is needed, the reserving group must reserve a space and incur any associated charges.

All events will be cancelled in the event the university is closed and/or classes are cancelled due to weather, natural disaster, or national emergency. Events will not be scheduled to take place anytime the university is closed, including holidays.

Special events

IUPUI has established procedures that will ensure the application of consistent standards for special events held in university-owned buildings and on university-owned properties. Below is the special event definition. If your event fits this definition, then you must complete a special event application, which will likely impact the time needed to fully process a reservation request. Events hosted annually that meet the definition of a special event will be required to submit an application on an annual basis.

SPECIAL EVENT DEFINITION: a non-routine activity (typically infrequent) held on the IUPUI campus that may require awareness by and/or services from multiple departments and by IU Public Safety entities. Major categories of special events include but are not limited to the following:

  • Conferences/symposia
  • Ceremonies
  • Seminars
  • VIP events
  • Exhibits/tradeshows
