Undergraduate Student Events

Chartered undergraduate student organizations are given priority for requesting The Barn during the academic year. Those wishing to request The Barn must do the following:

1. Lottery – Participate in a lottery for the following semester (held in November and April).

2. Reserve – At the conclusion of the lottery, requests must be submitted in DeaconSpace within 10 business days. After this period, all remaining spaces will be released to be requested on a first-come, first-served basis.

Reservations are not final until you receive written confirmation.

3. Register – Students planning to host an event in the Barn must participate in the Event Planning process through the Office of Student Engagement. Student events must be registered for this process.

WFU Departments/Graduate Student Groups

After the Undergraduate process is complete, university departments and graduate groups may request use of the space by logging in to DeaconSpace. Please refer to our guidelines before making a request.

External/Private Groups

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. Please visit our External Use page for more information.
