Facilities Use & Co-Sponsorship Request Form

The Hall Center for the Humanities is a designated research center at the University of Kansas with purpose-built facilities dedicated to the support of research in the humanities, arts, and social sciences, and the dissemination of that research to a broader public.

Rental: Center facilities are available on a rental basis to Hall Center affiliated groups and organizations whose proposed activity is consistent with the Center’s purpose. Facility descriptions and associated costs are available on our website at https://hallcenter.ku.edu/facilities-parking.

Co-Sponsorship: The Hall Center also co-sponsors a variety of events throughout the year. In the case of Hall Center affiliated groups and organizations, co-sponsoring includes a waiver of the facility use fees. It may also include any or all of the following: shared costs for receptions and speaker fees, logistical support, and assistance with publicity. On occasion, the Hall Center may also choose to co-sponsor events with non-affiliated groups and organizations.

Request Process: We look at a variety of factors when making a decision about which events to approve for rental or co-sponsorship. These include adherence to the facilities use policies, current priorities, staff availability, and scheduling considerations. Requests for weekend events are rarely successful because of Hall Center staffing constraints. Priority in scheduling is given to Hall Center events. Approval of a similar event in the past does not mean a new event can be accommodated. Hall Center facilities may not be used for personal events, and charging admission fees to attend events hosted at the Hall Center is prohibited.

Request for spring semester facility use and/or co-sponsorship must be received by November 1. Requests for fall semester facility use or co-sponsorship must be received by June 1.

Please complete the fields below to submit your request. Questions can be directed to Hall Center Assistant Director Andrew Hodgson at ahodgson@ku.edu.

Note: The Hall Center will not schedule any evening events during weeks in which we have a Humanities Lecture Series event scheduled. Requests for weekend events are rarely successful because of Hall Center staffing constraints.
Note: Events that extend beyond 5:00 p.m. entail additional staffing costs. Due to this fact, the number of evening events we can schedule is limited.
Please provide a brief description of the proposed event. If it is not already apparent in the description, please explain how this event will advance research and/or its dissemination to a broader public.
Note: Room capacity limits must be observed. While we want to encourage students to attend our public events, we request that faculty refrain from requiring their students to attend any Hall Center event.
Note: Use of the piano requires special approval. The cost of tuning the piano prior to an event is extra. The piano may not be moved more than a few feet from its present location and only by Hall Center staff.
Note: The Hall Center does not cover the cost of food or beverage service for sponsored events unless explicitly stated in a sponsorship agreement
Note: All service must be provided by Kansas Union Catering, 864-2444. Alcoholic beverage service requires advance approval by the Chancellor’s office.
The Hall Center looks more favorably on requests with existing sponsorship and co-sponsorship resources.
What kind of co-sponsorship are you requesting? (space, financial support, publicity, etc.)
