In most cases, registered student organizations and university departments may utilize Marquette University facilities at no charge when planning meetings and events that are directly related to a University program. When such criteria are met as outlined on the Guidelines for Determining Marquette University Facility Usage these spaces, along with associated equipment and labor charges will be offered at no charge to the department. A program qualifies as a University Department Event when the space is reserved by a Marquette University department, and the department is actively involved in all aspects, including the planning of the event. 

University Hosted Events are academic programs, conferences and/or meetings involving two entities: a University entity (academic department, administrative unit or registered student organization) and an outside organization (such as a professional association in which the University holds membership or maintains a relationship that directly benefits the University community or community-based organization).

Space and equipment rates will consistently apply to off-campus groups holding their event in Alumni Memorial Union & Facilities.    

AMU rate guides for University Hosted Events and Non-University Group Events may be found below or by contacting your Event Coordinator or AMU Event Services at (414) 288-0628.
