Reserving the Chapel:
All reservations must be made through the Student Involvement and Leadership Center. The Chapel may be reserved for events between 7:30 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. daily. All reservations except for weddings, have a limit of one and a half hours. Wedding reservations include two hours on the day of the ceremony and one hour for the rehearsal. An additional one hour only, for any event, may be purchased for an additional fee along with the reservation fee at time of reservation.
Reservations for weddings or commitment ceremonies must be made at least 30 days in advance of the date requested. Reservations for christenings must be made at least 2 weeks in advance of the date requested. For memorial services, please contact the office directly. Reservations are not guaranteed until payment and signed event agreement are received.
Please follow the steps below to ensure that you reserve the Chapel for the event.

All four steps must be completed in order for your reservation to be complete.* We cannot hold a date without a completed reservation process.
While there is no charge for registered student groups to reserve Danforth, we do require you 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. 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 on weekdays and weekends.
*Reservations are subject to cancellation in the event of any campus closure, in whole or in part, or for any cause beyond the University’s control, including orders, actions, regulations, or recommendations of local, state, or federal governmental authorities, including public health officials, that limit or restrict the size or manner of public gatherings.
