Facilities for Hosting Events

Selecting a location is very important to the success of your program or event. Consider where your guests are coming from (walking on campus or driving from off campus) and what time of day and the day of the week your program is scheduled for (to avoid conflicts with other users of parking spaces). View the OSU Campus map.

If you would like to offer alcoholic beverages to your guests (beer and wine only), please visit Risk Management to get the appropriate form. The form must be submitted at least three weeks prior to the event. Note also that alcohol can not be served at all locations on campus and cannot be served during normal business hours (8:00-5:00 M-F).

Sound permits are required for any outdoor event using amplified sound. Amplified sound is defined as sound played for anything other than personal listening. The proper permit must be obtained at least two weeks prior to your event. Learn more about Campus Grounds Use or download the Grounds Use Request form (Word document). If your event is to be held in the MU Quad, then download the sound permit for the MU Quad.
