Clayton UC

You are here


During the Clayton University Center Renovation we recognize there will be limited large programming spaces available.   Planning as far in advance will be beneficial and working with other groups and/or departments to co-sponsor events will help with space limitations.  As you are planning your events, here are just a few spaces you may wish to consider as an alternative.

Other locations which may work for your event and should be considered:

  • Iacocca Conference Center (Mountaintop Campus)l: Larger food scale events involving LU Catering (dinners, banquets, and more formal events) we suggest working with Conference Services 
  • Auditorium space for events that can utilize audience style seating (performances, talent shows, open mics, and speaker type events) in Packard 101, Whitaker, RBC, Zoellner through 25Live
  • Zoellner Art Center  there are a variety of theater and lobby spaces that may work creatively for your event  or LUAG for Gallery Space
  • Grace Hall for larger scaled events, this typically requires additional costs to have the floor covered and staffing
  • STEPS Atrium and Concourse lobby areas can be requested through 25Live and once confirmed would require a work order through Facilities to have tables/chairs brought in by ABM
