If you are scheduling an event at Saint Louis University, you may have questions about our policies or what is allowed in the space.
You are welcome to contact Event Services during our regular hours with any questions, but staff members are frequently out of the office working to make sure that our spaces are properly staged. You may be able to find the answer to your query below.
Reservations and Event Space Details
Saint Louis University's Office of the Registrar handles all reservations for auditoriums and classrooms through 25Live. Keep in mind that Saint Louis University’s first priority is educating its students. When class is not in session, however, our auditoriums and classrooms may be available for your event.
All of the event spaces listed in our venue menu conform to ADA standards and are accessible to all. Wheelchair accessible water fountains and restrooms are available throughout the buildings.
Food, Entertainment and Outside Vendors
Saint Louis University Event Services does not provide food, linen or china; please contact the campus caterer for your needs at 314-977-9430 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
All food trucks must provide insurance with general liability and workers compensation. You will need to coordinate with event services to host a food truck on campus. All requests require approval from Saint Louis University Facilities Services and Risk Management.
Outdoor events that require access to water (i.e for a dunk tank, games, etc) will need to coordinate with Event Services. Water requests require approval from Saint Louis University Facilities Services.
Advertising Events and Sponsorship
Chalk advertisements are permitted on concrete only in areas that can be naturally washed by rain and are not under building overhangs or surfaces. Only washable sidewalk chalk may be used. No messages that use obscene or defamatory language, threaten physical harm or are not entitled to the protection of free expression are allowed.
All sign staking must be 24 inches away from the sidewalk. Signs may not be placed on the turf soccer field leading up to the Busch Student Center from the Olive and Compton garage. If signs are not picked up at the conclusion of the client's event, the client will be charged accordingly.
All reservations for campus staking and chalking must go through our Google form.
Tabling is only available in SLU's Busch Student Center, Cook Hall Atrium and at limited outdoor locations.
