Venue Rental Information

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill organizations have first priority for the use of venues managed by Carolina Performing Arts. If your event will not be fully sponsored and directly paid for by a UNC Department or officially-recognized UNC student organization in good standing (or if you are unsure if your event qualifies as a University event), please read our Policies for University and Non-University Venue Users.

Please note the schedule for when venue rental requests are accepted:

  • Requests for dates July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2019 were accepted beginning on Monday, April 2, 2018.
  • Requests for dates July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020 are being accepted now.
  • Requests for dates July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021 will be accepted beginning on Wednesday, April 1, 2020.


Venue rental requests that are submitted before the dates listed above will not be accepted. Accepted reservation requests that are received at any point during the first weekday in April will be randomly ranked for preference. All requests received after that date will be filled in the order in which they are received.


Responses to reservation requests for 2019-20 dates should be sent out by May 1, 2019. Responses to reservation requests for 2020-21 dates should be sent out by May 1, 2020.
