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 May 18, 2020, 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 (Thursday, November 1, 2018).

We are pleased to announce our November Lottery for dates in May 2020 will be held in our 2nd Floor Office in Memorial Union. This newly renovated space is across from the historic Main Lounge.

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 Memorial Union (2nd Floor) 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 April 2020 for Union South and Memorial Union. We will begin taking reservations for May 2020 at the wedding lottery held on Thursday, October 1, 2018 at the Campus Event Services office at Memorial Union.
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.
