Venue Use

Kennesaw State University is committed to providing facilities for programs that are consistent with educational goals and mission of the University. As a community partner, the University also supports the need for public service events.

University Events (UE) makes every effort to screen events before they occur. Occasionally, an event that does not foster the mission, policies, and procedures of Kennesaw State University occurs. Use of University facilities that are incongruent with the Kennesaw State University mission, may result in loss of privileges.

Damage to University Property
All individuals using Kennesaw State University facilities are expected to take reasonable steps to ensure proper care of the venue and equipment. Damage, repair, and replacement costs are the responsibility of the sponsoring organization/department. Intentional misuse, vandalism, defacing and/or destruction of University facilities, and/or equipment may result in legal action including replacement costs and revocation of the privilege to reserve Kennesaw State University venues. Kennesaw State University property (i.e. furniture, paintings, sculptures, displays, flags, etc.) may not be moved or removed from a venue without approval from University Events.
