A service of the KU Memorial Union

Event Services: Room Configurations

For events, conferences, and major functions, the Burge Union's innovative Forum is actually four spaces that can be modularly configured and combined into multiple larger space combinations.

Events can reserve a single Forum space (A, B, C, or D), can merge two or more spaces through the building's state-of-the art SKYFOLD partition system, or can open all spaces up into each other to create the largest public reception space at KU and in Lawrence.

To review individual and collective space dimensions, capacities, and rates, you can learn more here.

If you're ready to start planning your future Burge Union event, you can begin the reservation process now. We're here to help.
