The Outdoor Program Request (OPR) Form, linked at the bottom of this page, must be completed and approved to hold an event or program, including tabling, in outdoor areas on MSU's campus.  On AND off campus groups and individuals must complete this form. Please view the MSU campus map and provide us with a DETAILED description of the area you wish to use for your event/program in the online form.

A number of outdoor areas are managed by Sports Facilities and therefore have a separate reservation process.  Please view the list of these areas HERE.

Student Organizations are eligible to check out equipment from the Office of Student Engagement if equipment is available. Please fill out the Equipment Check-Out Request Form at least 48 hours before your event.

Outdoor Spaces Currently listed that fall under this approval process:

  • Hannon Lawn
  • Lewis and Clark Field
  • Quads
  • Romney Flagpole Area
  • SUB Mall (area outside Bookstore entrance of SUB)
  • Centennial Mall
  • Wally Byam Park
  • Roskie Beach
  • Areas outside any academic or campus building
  • Events in parking lots
  • Sidewalks and green spaces (such as chalk or staking objects)

All OPR forms must be submitted at least two (2) full weeks before the event date.   If you submit a request outside of that time frame, we cannot guarantee approval of the event.

This form is for APPROVAL AND NOTIFICATION purposes only; it does not serve as a reservation. Use of space is on a first-come, first-served basis. You must wait to receive your final event approval email before moving forward with your event/program in an outdoor area of this campus.
