UMSL is a great place to hold a performance with several venues to choose from and plenty of FREE parking.

Our premiere performance venue is the Blanche M. Touhill Performing Arts Center with a traditional 1600-seat roadhouse, a 400-seat flexible theater, and a 200-seat showcase space.  There are additional venues in the Millennium Student Center and the UMSL Conference Center.  University staff can take care of all your needs from marketing, to ticketing, to front of house, and technical services.   

Are you ready to book your spaces?

You must be organized under the University and able to pay fees with a MoCode.  Students, Alumni, Faculty, and Staff looking to use space and services for personal events do not qualify.

You may request space through our Online Booking Application which will allow you search for open rooms or you can submit an inquiry form.  Either way a confirmation will not be available for a couple of days.


Please note UMSL does not provide free space for community use.  All usage requires event insurance and the payment of fees.  Please fill out the form below to tell us what you are planning.


 Please note that all food service must be supplied by our campus caterer, Sodexo.
