Overview

The Jundt Art Museum is available for a variety of events. Download the Facility Usage Request Instructions for complete information.

The Basics

  • The Jundt Art Museum will not schedule any event if the requested date is less than four weeks away.
  • One or two people from the group renting the space must be on hand from set-up through clean-up.

We do not allow: Helium balloons, champagne, Sterno, open flame of any kind, red wine, weddings, wedding receptions, dances, dinners for more than 40 people. Any additional furniture will reduce the number of guests.

Fees

Rental fees are due when you turn in your signed rental contract. Security Officer wages will be billed after the event. A security and cleaning deposit of $250 must accompany your request form. If there is no damage and clean up for your event requires only the normal time custodial allots to the art museum, your full deposit will be refunded to you.

  • Receptions for up to 95 people for two hours: $200
  • Dinners for up to 40 people for two hours: $500

Fees will be pro-rated for longer events.

The rental fee is waived if the organization responsible for the event is from within Gonzaga University. If a Gonzaga university employee or department wishes to sponsor an event, there is a 25% discount.

Organizations outside the Gonzaga community must provide insurance coverage for their event. There is a $25 one-time, non-refundable fee to process liability insurance.

Fees which cannot be waived or discounted:

  • Campus Security Officer - $25/hour, with a minimum of $100
  • Use of the Jundt Galleries during your event - $50 (this option is not always available)

Even though you've paid your rental fee or are members of the Gonzaga community, you are still visitors to the museum. Please do not move, remove, add, open, close, turn on, or turn off anything without asking museum staff first.

Furniture

The museum will provide tables and chairs for your event and will set them up according to the design you and the Program Coordinator decide on during you meeting. No furniture is allowed in the Arcade Gallery or the Jundt Galleries.

Brochures, Flyers, and Invitations

Any publication used to announce or advertise your event must be approved by the museum Director or the Program Coordinator.

Alcohol Policy

Alcohol cannot be served if your event is not restricted by invitation or if the museum is open to the public. If alcohol is served, you must have a designated Sodexo bartender.

Catering and Caterers

Sodexo Catering (509) 313-6902 is the only caterer allowed in the Jundt Art Museum. You must hire Sodexo personnel to oversee your event. That fee is $20/hour per server. For most events, we ask that you request paper service. If you believe your event requires china service, you must get permission from the Program Coordinator.

Additional Spaces and Items

Any use of the Art Department hallways (some caterers use this space for staging food) needs to be cleared by Laurie Hitchcock (509) 313-6686. The lecture hall (Jundt 110) is scheduled through GUEST Services by calling (509) 313-6857.

Auxiliary Items
