Event Space Requests
Due to internal demand on space and resource constraints, Haas School of Business does not rent out our event venues at this time, and is only accepting event venue requests for events specifically hosted by Haas departments and centers for which the primary audience of the events is Haas students, staff, faculty, and/or alumni.
Requests are made through EMS at least two weeks prior to the requested date for event spaces. Event Spaces may only be requested a maximum of a semester out. Requests are then evaluated inline with our Haas space management policy which gives priority to academic events, academic related events, and major annual or mission critical events.
You will be notified if your request has been confirmed or declined via email.
Details of each venue can be found in the “Use Guidelines” links below.
For event space and event related questions, please use this email [email protected]
