May I serve alcohol at my event?
Yes, you are welcome to serve alcohol. You will need to use a caterer from our list for the alcohol service. We don't allow cash bars, and a licensed bartender must serve the drinks. All events serving alcohol must receive approval from our vice chancellor at the KU Edwards Campus and from the Office of the KU Provost in Lawrence. We will give you a form to complete and submit for approval. Please allow 2-3 weeks for this process.

Yes, when renting the Conference Center or Auditorium space.
Do you offer linen rental?
We do not offer linen service. You can rent linens through your caterer or rent them directly from your vendor of choice.
Do you offer rental discounts?
We do! We offer non-profit organizations, school districts and first-time users discounted rates. We also offer discounts for KU departments and groups sponsored by a KU department as well as multi-day discounts. Talk with our events team to learn more about our already low rental rates and to see if you qualify for a discounted rate.
