Rent the Lied Center

As a part of its work to support connections between the University of Kansas and the Lawrence community, the Lied Center of Kansas is proud to serve as host to over one hundred rental events each year. These events are produced by organizations throughout the community, from local businesses and community organizations to university-related groups. Examples include P1 Group, the Bromelsick Christmas Party, Dole Institute of Politics, Rock Chalk Revue, Hall Center for the Humanities and various academic departments. We are thrilled that so many groups come together in our facility to build connections and dialogue around a wide variety of topics.

All of our spaces are available to rent to both on-campus and off-campus organizations. Please note that on-campus users receive priority booking and discounted rates.
