Internal Event Spaces

UNMC's beautiful campus offers a variety of event spaces for gatherings of all sizes.

It's an easy process to reserve campus facilities and services for an internal event funded by a UNMC department or student organization, or University affiliate (such as Nebraska Medicine). The only requirement is that the department/organization reserving the space must be the same department/organization paying for and using the space for the stated purpose.

Browse the locations below to find the indoor or outdoor space that's ideal for your event.

Planning Considerations

Before narrowing down a location for your event, please take the following steps:

  • Be informed of what tables, a/v or other equipment is available in your event space and request any additional items in advance. There will be an additional cost if items need to be rented.
  • Be sure to block off enough time for room set-up and clean-up, if applicable.
  • Buildings on campus are locked at all times. Communicate special access needs for guests and vendors with the Campus Events Center Coordinator.
  • Book a rain venue if the event is outdoors.
