- Event Setup:
The Facilities and Maintenance Operations does not assist with room reservations or space rental.

Those resources are limited and as a result events should be booked and scheduled well in advance of a planned event (typically 2 weeks prior).
Capital Planning and Construction
Our commitment is to provide KSU faculty, staff, students and visitors the best possible environment for teaching, learning, research and public service activities while preserving historic features that signify KSU’s rich heritage as a Historically Black College/University (HBCU). We translate departmental needs into major capital projects, using the latest technological enhancements and facility attributes to maximize benefit to the University–while staying consistent with its growth patterns.
