Are you interested in renting a School of Film, Dance and Theatre facility?

Thank you for your interest in renting one of our spaces!

As an academic institution, our facilities are reserved for first for our own student events and performances.  A standard for-profit rental facility tries to fill its entire schedule with events and has a full crew and ready equipment to anticipate and handle almost any event. In our facilities we allow rentals around our own production and class schedules – with staffing, technical equipment and needs addressed on a per show/event basis.

We enjoy the opportunity to open our facilities for public use barring any conflicts with academic use (scheduled and tentative) and we also must take into consideration the availability of our student workers (factors include academic work, midterms/finals, commitment to our own shows, other jobs, winter/summer breaks and vacations, etc.) We are proud of the many opportunities we offer students in our School and as such, they are often an extremely busy group.

We are not obligated in any way to host an event and may retract dates due to academic priorities before signatures on contracts are received. It is important that no assumption of the guarantee of space is made until approval and signature by the Dean of the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts is received.
