Reservations


Reserving the Chapel:

Danforth Chapel is open to the public from 8a-5p, Monday thru Friday. Groups may use the facility during this time if the chapel remains accessible to the general public during use.

Reservations for Danforth Chapel are available through the KU Memorial Union Event Services office by calling (785) 864-2444 or emailing us at eventservices@ku.edu. Student organizations may reserve the chapel for a private event from 5-7p Monday-Thursday.

Reservations for private events are available outside of the hours above at a rate of $150/hour and are guaranteed when full payment is received.

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.

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.

 

Student Groups

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.
