Sponsoring a Non-Affiliated Group

WashU faculty, staff and students may sponsor a non-university group to host an event on the Danforth campus. This offers an opportunity for your department or office to support community initiatives or outside organizations.

  • All fees are billed directly to the sponsoring department through the online university billing system.
  • Rental fees apply to all non-university groups at the listed rate. Departmental sponsorship offers the opportunity of a 50% fee reduction.
