Scheduling a Public Space

Public Space Usage: 

Please refer to the Space Scheduling and Fundraising Policy for a full outline of requirements for use of public spaces at UNMC.

Any persons or groups who wish to use any spaces including, an atrium or green space for events, require approval through the CSO. Central Scheduling will determine whether the proposed event does or does not meet the criteria listed herein. Approval from the CSO must be received prior to any written or advertised notice of the event. 

 UNMC Policy No. 6086, Regulations on the Use of University Facilities and Grounds, provides guidance for access to the facilities and grounds consistent with BoR policy 6.4.10.

The activity must be related to the mission or directly benefit UNMC, Nebraska Medicine, their employees, students or affiliated organizations.
