The Kanbar Campus Center is well equipped with technology resources. Specific resources are listed above by room. In addition, the building is on our wireless network throughout (Please note that in order for anyone/guests to access the network from outside the University community, arrangements must be made through OIR (The Office of Information Resources) to obtain a username and password.

A laptop computer is available to be used in the conference rooms and in the Performance Space. The laptop must be requested and is available on a first-come-first-serve basis.


As the core co-curricular facility, the Kanbar Center offers an exciting opportunity to share
with the University community works of art and design created by students, faculty and
external artists/designers whose work supports the University mission.

This policy implements a specific understanding for use of galleries in the Kanbar Campus
Center for student, faculty or staff shows in those spaces. Kanbar gallery spaces include the
specified wall area in the Common Thread located on the 1st level and the specified wall area
in “Ted’s” located on the 2nd level (see attached elevation). Exhibited art work will be confined
to these spaces only. Shows/exhibitions will not be permanent but will rotate, reflecting the
diversity of programs and the range of student and faculty talent.

Similar to the process for use of all common space in the building, gallery space will be
reserved through the Office of the Director of the Kanbar Campus Center. It is not required
but advisable to schedule shows/exhibitions, 6 months in advance. In addition to reserving
gallery space, completion of the online reservation form is also required.

It is the responsibility of each school and/or departmental dean to ensure that
shows/exhibitions sponsored by their school / department meets, or exceeds policy
requirements including the following.

1. The faculty / staff organizer of the exhibit and hosting school dean will work with
physical plant staff to determine in advance how work will be hung on thin
cords/wires using the system provided. Faculty organizer also will work with the
exhibiting artists/designers who should be present for the hanging of the works.
2. Exhibiting artists/designers are responsible for framing their own work or
otherwise preparing it for display and are also responsible for delivering and
picking up their work at an agreed time.
3. The hanging or taking down of work must not create damage to the Kanbar
Campus Center. Work shall not interfere with entrance or egress in any spaces in
the building.
4. The dean of the school / department and faculty / staff organizer of the show can
refuse to exhibit any works that are deemed inappropriate, unsafe or offensive to
the University community or general public.
5. Gallery exhibitions are not commercial entities and should not be promoted or
encouraged on that basis. That is, no price tags or indications that items are for
sale can be included in the show. Although a catalog may be produced it should
not give the impression of a commercial gallery show. In addition, the University
should receive no percentage of any sales that might occur.
6. The University is not responsible in any way for damaged or stolen works at any
time during the hanging or taking down or during exhibitions
7. Gallery openings will be scheduled so they do not interfere with other events
previously scheduled to occur in the Kanbar Campus Center. The duration of
exhibitions can be for four to eight weeks and is agreed upon at the time the
exhibition is scheduled.
8. In the event galleries are used for exhibits of non-faculty/student work, such
requests must be sponsored by a school dean, approved by the Vice President
for Academic Affairs, and scheduled only if not conflicting with internal requests.
Kanbar Campus Center Gallery Usage Approval.


The Kanbar Terrace has no furniture and availability of University furniture is limited. Furniture rentals may be required for approved events.

Certain areas of the building require special approval. All requests are reviewed by the Assistant Dean of Students / Director of the Campus Center and Student Activities. Additional event information may be required and/or a meeting may be needed to discuss the details of the request.

Any requested area in the Kanbar Campus Center considered a “Common Space” is approved on a limited basis only. Limiting the use of “Common Areas” for events is essential in our efforts to keep the building’s operations and services available to students and the campus community at all times during scheduled hours. The following are considered “Common Spaces”: Balcony, Living Room, Lockyer Lounge, Ted’s, the Miller Lounge and Common Thread.
