Facility Rentals

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

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.

Reserving Campus Recreation Activity Areas

Any university affiliated group wishing to use any Campus Recreation facility must submit an online Facility Request Form indicating the dates and times related to your request. Organized activities other than those approved by the Campus Recreation office are prohibited. Campus Recreation uses a hierarchical process for the reservation of our facilities:

  1. Campus Recreation programs
  2. Ole Miss Registered Student Organizations (must be registered with the Office of Leadership and Advocacy on the Forum and must submit an event registration form on the ForUM and receive approval)
  3. Ole Miss affiliated groups (university departments/athletics)

Note: At this time, Campus Recreation can no longer accept third-party (non-University) reservations.  See IHL Policy #912 here.

NOTE: The South Campus Recreation Center (SCRC) will be the primary facility for open recreation. Reservation requests for the SCRC will be limited & reviewed on a case by case basis.

A submitted facility reservation request form does not guarantee approval of the request. You will receive an email within 7 days of the receipt of your request.  Facility rental pricing is below.
