Facility Rentals


Rental Policies & Rental Rates

The Department of Campus Recreation oversees and manages the following indoor and outdoor facilities: Turner Center, Turner Center Tennis Courts, Blackburn-McMurray Outdoor Sports Complex, and Stadium (Baseball) Tennis Courts. All reservation information provided pertains to rental/use of one or more of the above.

The Department of Campus Recreation reserves the right to refuse use to any group due to conflicts with upcoming events, field conditions, history of non-payment or history of abuse to facilities.

*Effective January 2013 Due to increased needs of our program and recreation time for our growing student body, we can no longer accommodate nonstudent group reservations for the Turner Center gymnasium, multipurpose room, and intramural and sport club fields. Special consideration will be given to the local high schools that have previously used these areas. Limitations on student organizations attempting to reserve recreational space will also take effect.


Reserving Campus Recreation Activity Areas

Any group or organization wishing to use any DCR facility must fill out a Facility Request Form and return the completed form to 214 Turner at least one week prior to the event. The Department of Campus Recreation uses a hierarchical process for the reservation of our facilities.

  1. Department of Campus Recreation programs
  2. Ole Miss student organizations (must be registered with the Dean of Students Office)
  3. Ole Miss affiliations (university departments/athletics)
  4. Non-university (community and off-campus groups)

Non-university groups that have consistently (three consecutive years) reserved space shall be considered to have Ole Miss affiliation status; however, the space and time being reserved must remain consistent.

To assist in requesting facility reservations, click here for a Facility Request Form.

A submitted facility reservation request form does not guarantee approval of the request.
