Meeting Facilities: Upper Gwinn Conference Center
Reservation priority is determined for both SPU and non-SPU events by definition and date.
SPU Events are defined by two categories — "Main Events" and "Other Events." They are co-curricular, educational, and social programs that enhance and promote the University's academic and community environment. Main Events are given priority during the fall, winter, and spring academic quarters.
a) Main Events: Reoccurring events that support the broader SPU mission, as determined by the President's Cabinet (e.g., Homecoming, Group, Faculty Dinner, Board of Trustees).
b) Other Events: Those that fit into the broader description of SPU events; that are primarily designed for and attended by SPU students, faculty, staff, and their guests; and/or, that are primarily funded by SPU dollars. These events are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis after SPU Main Events are scheduled.
Non-SPU Related Events are defined as those requested by nonprofit, tax-exempt organizations [501c3]. These programs are primarily designed for and attended by people not related to SPU, and are primarily funded through non-SPU dollars. Non-SPU related events are given priority during both the summer session and quarter breaks. All Non-SPU Related Events are scheduled, contracted, and coordinated through the Conference Services Office.
