Rental Information

The Hay Barn is a large and flexible space, easily accommodating events any month of the year! The space is large enough to hold a lecture, wedding ceremony and reception inside in the main hall. Many clients utilize the outside area and parking lot in warm weather.




We also offer an outdoor site on the Farm at our Ocean View Field, which operates (weather permitting) from early July through October, as a separate hourly rental.


  • We do not offer any in-house catering, or event staffing. 
  • The weekend rental rate (Saturday/Sunday) gives you 12 hours of event time that includes your set up and tear down/clean up.  We have a $1000 security deposit, refundable post event if no damage.  Due to the impact of large events on other campus departments, we do not host weddings on weekdays.
  • We have a 10 pm sound ordinance and an 11 pm event end time.
  • The Hay Barn rental includes 80 chairs and 14 tables:

  • Capacity: approx.150 seated for sit-down dinner in main hall
  • Event holders are welcomed to bring in their own caterer and other event vendors, as long as they can adhere to the university’s insurance requirements and submits a certificate of liability insurance 90 days prior to the event.
  • We allow the serving of beer and wine. Hard alcohol is allowed if served by a professional bartender with  liquor liability insurance.
  • We maintain a preferred vendor list if you need recommendations for local event vendors who are familiar with working here.
  • A professional event coordinator is required for at least the day of the event.
