UM's Major Performance Venues (Hill Auditorium, Power Center for the Performing Arts, Rackham Auditorium, Arthur Miller Theater and Lydia Mendelssohn Theater) are managed by University Productions. University Productions rents these venues to three major presenters on campus: the University Musical Society, the School of Music, Theater, and Dance, and the Center for Campus Involvement in accordance with the Hart-Wright Guidelines. University Productions also rents these facilities to UM departments and non-university clients hosting small, non-professional events that do not require event coordination services.
Student organizations seeking to plan events in one of UM's Major Performance Venues should contact the Center for Campus Involvement to reserve these facilities and receive event planning advisement. More information about the Student Organization Reservation Process is available online.
University Departments and Non-University Clients wanting to host a Major Event should also contact the Center for Campus Involvement to reserve these facilities and receive event planning assistance. An event is considered to be a Major Event when it requires large-scale production, would benefit from specialized event coordination, features professional entertainment, or is being produced for commercial purposes. Examples include departmental concerts, promoter concerts, comedians, beauty pageants, dance competitions, professional theatrical presentations, etc.
The University Productions Venue Rental and Scheduling Policies apply to all reservations made through the Center for Campus Involvement.
