External Use

External groups may request the use of the Barn for events such as wedding receptions and parties, however these requests are only accepted for events taking place during the months of June and July. During the rest of the year, the Barn is reserved for the use of Reynolda Campus student groups and university departments.

Reservation requests will be accepted up to one year in advance.

To inquire about availability and ask questions about the space, please submit the Campus Programs & Services Off-Campus Space Inquiry Form.

Barn showings may be arranged by appointment, Monday-Friday 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM. Contact Leigh Myers at myersl@nullwfu.edu.

Half Day (less than 6 hours): $700

Full Day: (6-12 hours): $1100

Note: If you will need a substantial amount of extra time to set up and decorate, you may want to rent the space for more than one day. Rental fees will apply to set up/decorating time.
