Event Space Request

​​​​​​​​The Theatre School facilities are unavailable for rental activity at this time. This page will be updated when we are able to consider event requests. For questions, please contact  

Thank you for your interest in hosting your upcoming event at The Theatre School at DePaul University!

Our facilities exists primarily to support the activities of our current conservatory students and Theatre School community. We have a very full production schedule throughout the year. While we try to accommodate new requests, student work is our priority.  

To inquire about a space, please fill out the Event Space Request Form.  Upon review, a Theatre School events staff member will respond with more information. Our committee meets once a week to review all requests so please be advised it may take up to two weeks to respond regarding your inquiry. 

Please know that appointments are required to view or tour our rental spaces, and that we cannot accommodate walk-in requests to discuss the nature or feasibility of your event with our staff.  Estimates will be provided if we can move forward with your request.  

Please note that we cannot properly support requests made less than three weeks before the requested event date. For this reason, all events must be confirmed at least three weeks out.
