Student Groups

There is no charge for registered student groups to reserve Danforth, but you are required to fill-out a Danforth Reservation Form at least two weeks prior to your event.

The chapel is only available to registered student organizations Monday-Friday, from 7:30 am - 10:00 pm for one and a half hours per day. Any event sponsored by such organizations must be approved by the Office of Event Management and Protocol. Please complete this online event request form and review the event organizer guidelines. The reservations made by registered student organizations are never guaranteed if a paying party wishes to use it for a wedding, christening,  or memorial service.  Those reservations will take precedence over all other activities.
