Facilities Rental

Welcome! While Mount Marty University students are our first priority during the academic year, many of our facilities are available for rent to the public. We wish to be hospitable to our guests and will assist you for a successful and memorable event.  For information regarding campus locations, presentation equipment, rental policies and general event planning questions, please contact becky.luellman@mountmarty.edu.

Included in our rental fees are use of facilities, basic set up and tear down and basic sound services. We will accommodate requests for technology, equipment and more elaborate set designs to the best of our ability and charge accordingly. We recommend that you schedule a visit to view your room(s) and review your arrangements. 

A contract will be created based on your requests, which includes a “hold harmless agreement” to use any space on the Mount Marty University campus. We require that you provide us with a $1 million Certificate of Insurance (personal liability) identifying Mount Marty as the additional insured for the time you are on campus. 

Fresh Ideas provides all catering on the Mount Marty University campus. Menu choices and costs can be obtained by contacting the catering manager at 605-668-1553.

Mount Marty University is a tobacco-free campus. Alcohol is not permitted unless an application is submitted and approved. Events must be in compliance with the mission and values of Mount Marty University.

All rental events are subject to appropriate sales tax unless a certificate of exemption is presented.
