Securing Your Date
We begin taking reservations for events on the first working day of the month, 18 months in advance of a requested event date.
For example, if you are interested in having a wedding reception on October 10, 2018, the earliest you can make a request for a reservation would be the first working day of the month, 18 months prior to the event (Monday, May 1, 2017).
Popular Space Reservations For Union Members
The Union uses a lottery system for member reservations in our popular large reception spaces—Great Hall, Tripp Commons and Varsity Hall. On the first business day of each month, those Union members who arrive at the Campus Event Services office in Union South (2nd Floor - Room 233) between 8:00 am and 9:00 am will be given a number upon completion of a form. The lottery will be held at 9:00 am with reservations made in the order that the numbers are drawn.
We are currently accepting reservations through October, 2018 for Union South and Memorial Union. We will begin taking reservations for November 2018 at the wedding lottery held on Monday, May 1, 2017 at the Campus Event Services office (Room 233) at Union South.
Due to University conferences and events, not all weekend dates may be available. Before coming to the lottery, please call or email the office to determine the most current availability.

Please note that reservations for events occurring less than 18 months in advance are accepted on a first come, first serve basis.
