There are hundreds of venues on the University of Utah campus. Classrooms, ballrooms, theaters and recreation spaces are all available for those who need them to host any type of event. And now it’s even easier to locate the perfect space.
The new campus venues website allows users to locate venues depending on location, event type, number of guests and square footage. They then can browse the listings that meet their needs and get the contact information to book the perfect space.
“The university has a lot of spaces that are really beautiful and rentable both by campus departments and off-campus folks that may wish to rent a facility,” said Brett Eden, director of Auxiliary Business Development. “This website features all of these locations in one place so people can relatively easily get the details of the space and the contact info to start planning an event of any size on campus.”
Currently, the site is searchable for venues including the University Guest House, the Student Life Center, Marriott Library, the Union and many others. You can book everything from a conference room to a rock wall or even a swimming pool. More venues will be added in the coming weeks as well. “We’ve set up an easy way for people to add venues to the site so they are easily searchable,” said Meghan Webb, assistant director of Conference & Event Management. “All they have to do is email a request to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can get their space added to the venues.utah.edu website.”
