Just because there are no conflicting events listed on the public calendar does NOT necessarily mean the Chapel is available for your event.
When anticipating a crowd of over 1,000 persons, tickets will be required to be distributed. If you are using tickets for you event, please do not oversell the venue.
Please note that groups wanting to list their event on the University Calendar must do so themselves. The Chapel can share listings via our external calendar.
