Venue Options


Lamar University has several venues available for rental. Event spaces at Lamar University are open to the public for rental but official campus events receive priority booking. For non-campus events, venues are not formally reserved until the university receives a non-refundable deposit of one half of the total revenue amount. A rental agreement and formal contract must also be in place ahead of the event
