Facility Reservations

** At this time, we are not accepting Facility Reservations for the Student Recreation Center **

University Departments and Organizations can reserve Campus Recreation facilities without being charged for the space, but other charges may be required (staff, equipment, ect.) depending on the nature of the request.

External (non-EKU affilliated) requests will be charged for using the space in addition to other resource charges (if applicable). External requests may contact Campus Recreation, or Conferencing and Events. External requestors are responsible for supplying a certificate of liability insurance, as well as completing and submitting a reservation contract, before a reservation will be confirmed.

After requests are submitted, Campus Recreation requires a meeting to be scheduled with the organizing party, and prefers this to take place at least two weeks before the event, as well as the week of the event. Campus Recreation reserves the right to waive this requirement after assessing the needs of the requestor. The confirmation of the reservation will depend on the following criteria:

  • Date, time, and the space requested

  • Scope and nature of the event

  • Congruence with all state, university, and departmental regulations

  • Impact to existing programs and schedules

  • Satisfactory completion of requested requirements

  • Availability of sufficient group representatives, chaperones, or advisors

  • Availability of Campus Recreation staff to supervise the event

  • Previous experience with group

  • Ability to pay all relevant charges pertaining to building rental, equipment rental, staffing, and damages (if applicable).

In accordance with the Building Charter for the new Student Recreation Center and the Intramural Field Complex, the primary purpose of these facilities is to serve the recreational needs of students enrolled at EKU. EKU Students' membership fee is included in their student fees (for students enrolled in 5 or more credit hours on the Richmond Campus), and pays for over 60% of the operating costs of the department. 

The primary goal is to keep Campus Recreation facilities open and available for the entire university community. In order to support our deparment mission, we have established facility reservation policies for each of the various activity spaces within the Student Recreation Center and satellite facilities. 


*Pricing will be updated and posted once we begin accepting reservations. We anticipate this to be after spring break (March 16th, 2020)*
