Facility Rentals at Oregon State University

 How do I rent Recreational Sports facility space?

Approval of facility rental requests is dependent upon: priority scheduling, availability, impact to existing programs, scope and nature of the event, date(s) of facility request, and the submission date of the facility reservation request. Plan at least three weeks advance notice for most rentals. Depending on your group, you may be required to provide waivers and/or obtain a certificate of insurance. Payment is required prior to the date of your reservation.


Reservations are made up to two days in advance by an individual member and allow you to reserve a facility on the hour for up to one hour for casual use.  The following spaces can be reserved:  racquetball, squash, badminton, volleyball, tennis, or multi-purpose rooms.  Reservations are made at the Dixon Recreation Center entry desks or by calling 541-737-2202.  Formal events supported or sponsored by organizations necessitate a facility rental (see below). 


Rentals are ongoing or advanced reservation for exclusive use of a space for a negotiated period of time.  Rentals can be made by any organization (departments, student organizations, youth leagues, community organizations or private entities) to host practices, meetings, camps, or special events.  Rentals require three weeks advance notice to process.  Additional insurance may be required for certain organizations.  Rental information can be found online at Recsports.oregonstate.edu/rentals or by E-mailing recsportsrentals@oregonstate.edu, 541-737-6783.
