Reserving the Chapel:

All reservations must be made through the Student Involvement and Leadership Center. The Chapel may be reserved for events between 7:30 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. daily.  All reservations except for weddings, have a limit of ONE HOUR.  Wedding reservations include TWO HOURS on the day of the ceremony and ONE HOUR for the rehearsal.   An additional one hour ONLY, for any event, may be purchased for an additional fee along with the reservation fee at time of reservation.

Reservations for weddings or commitment ceremonies must be made at least 30 days in advance of the date requested. Reservations for christenings must be made at least 2 weeks in advance of the date requested. For memorial services, please contact the office directly. Reservations are not guaranteed until payment and signed event agreement are received. If your payment is made by check and it is returned for insufficient funds your reservation will be canceled.

Please follow the steps below to ensure that you reserve the Chapel for the event.

All five steps must be completed in order for your reservation to be complete.  We cannot hold a date without a completed reservation process.


Student Groups

While there is no charge for registered student groups to reserve Danforth, but we do require you to fill-out a Danforth Reservation Form and submit it to at least two weeks prior to your event.

The chapel is only available to registered student organizations Monday-Thursday, from 7:30 am-10:00 pm for one hour per day.  The reservations made by registered student organizations are never guaranteed if a paying party wishes to use it for a wedding, christening,  or memorial service.  Those reservations will take precedence over all other activities on weekdays and weekends.
