University Departments, Registered Student Organizations (via their advisors) and alumni may reserve space for Events at various Facilities on Kentucky State University’s beautiful campus. Venues include ballrooms, auditoriums, classrooms, theaters, multi-purpose facilities, green spaces, and more.

  • ALL EXTERNAL ENTITIES MUST first contact Public Engagement and Community Outreach for information on the contractual process and rates. Do not proceed with submitting this request form and instead call (502) 597-6063 if you wish to request a space for your organization.
  • KSU DEPARTMENTS AND REGISTERED STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS (via advisors) MUST click on the button below to begin the reservation process through the Office of Auxiliary Services.  This step in the process does not reserve space, but simply submits the request that will be reviewed by Auxiliary Services and applicable campus contacts.  An Auxiliary Services representative will follow up with either an approval or denial of the Request.  Requests initiated via email, rather than through this form, will not be considered; they will be discarded. If your event involves food, the Kentucky State University dining partner needs to be contacted as they have first right of refusal. If our dining partner is able to accommodate the event (that involves food), they will need to receive a PO otherwise they have no obligation to provide food for the event.  So please make sure you allow for two to four weeks for both your inquiry to our dining partner and for the needed/necessary internal processing of any requisitions and PO.

  • An organization which desires to cancel an approved Event must send notification by e-mail to FacEvntReserv@kysu.edu no later than one week prior to the scheduled Event. Please use the copy of the event request that you receive as the basis for letting this office know that the event (originally submitted/requested) is being canceled.
  • All organizations are required to clean the facilities used for scheduled Events immediately following the end of the Event or be prepared to pay for janitorial services.
  • Any special equipment (i.e., microphone, podium etc.) needed for Bradford Hall, Hill Student Center or elsewhere must be listed on the Facility/Event Reservation Form.
  • ALL events that involve the need for food to be served must involve contacting the Kentucky State University dining partner (as they have first right of refusal). If the dining partner is able to accommodate the event, there MUST be at least two to four weeks between the date of the event and when the requisition and PO are complete.  If there is no PO provided to the Kentucky State University dining partner, the Kentucky State University dining partner is under no obligation to provide food for the event.
  • Designated University facilities may be reserved for use by Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) via their advisors, Faculty/Staff and alumni during the Regular Academic year, Intercession and Summer Session for Events related to the purposes of the organization. The Director of Student Life will coordinate the registration of all Student-sponsored Events in accordance with established procedures.
  • An Advisor must reserve facilities on behalf of RSOs. The Advisor will be considered the Responsible Party for maintaining the condition of the facilities. The facilities must be used in a manner consistent with all regulations, policies and guidelines governing Student life.
  • Facilities reserved for use by an Advisor for a RSO may not be used by any other organization during the period of the reservation.
  • No Student-sponsored Event will be scheduled during the week of Homecoming nor within one week of final examinations nor except those which are considered a part of the Commencement activities unless approved by the Director of Student Life Center and the Vice President for Student Affairs.
  • An important update regarding the Hill Student Center: The “Flex Area” does not include the “Food Court” space. The “Food Court” space is reserved for the dining partner/Auxiliary Services use to provide dining space for students during meal times and during other dining events hosted by dining partner/Auxiliary Services. The “Flex Area” in the Hill Student Center consists solely of the open-space (hallways) that immediately surrounds the “Food Court”, but does not  include the “Food Court”. Therefore, if you are reserving the “Flex Area”, you will need to request tables/chairs as the tables/chairs in the Food Court are not to be removed for use in the “Flex Area”. Questions? Please contact the Auxiliary Services Director listed on our website or send us an email at FacEvntReserv@kysu.edu with the subject line “Flex/Food Court”.
  • An important update regarding Bradford Hall: If your event has been approved for Bradford Hall (Auditorium or Little Theatre) you MUST send an email  immediately to: donna.carter@kysu.edu indicating technical or audio visual needs (i.e. mics, projections, etc.) for your event.  The contact phone # is 502-597-6497.
