SU Event Packages

SU Event Packages

The Students Union owns multiple event venues and spaces that are accessible and affordable for student group events. From pub nights, to speaker series, to late night dance parties; our venues can meet a wide range of needs for events on campus while offering affordable rates and incentives student groups.

A student group can book either a public or private event in a Students' Union venue. All events in our venues cover student groups with general liability insurance. GST is not included in any listed prices. Note: events still have to be submitted to the Dean of Students' Office for event approval. More information on the DoS website.


Public Events

If you are looking for a space to host a community event for free, and are a registered student group, then you have the opportunity to host public events during our regular operating hours.

A public event is held by your group during regular operating hours, is open and inclusive to the UAlberta community and is free of cost for registered student groups. Specifically, a public event:

  • Cannot be ticketed and cannot charge admission
  • Must not significantly disrupt regular operations
  • Is not a table reservation for your group, or an exclusive party or event for your group
  • Is free, but with limited event options

Email bookings@su.ualberta.ca to see if your event is a suitable match for a public event.


Private Events

Registered student groups have the opportunity to host private events in a number of our venues.

A private event:

  • Can be ticketed or charge admission
  • Can have custom programming or events (within the venue’s limitations)
  • Provides exclusive access to the space for your group and guests
  • Involves payment, with custom event options

Email bookings@su.ualberta.ca to see if your event is an appropriate match for a private event.

The packages below are an example of some standard bookings our venue offers for student groups. If you have a more complex vision for your event, please reach out to us for more information.
