UO Portland's Scheduling & Event Services has compiled a helpful manual that serves as an overview and reference tool for clients who are planning events at the White Stage Block.
The Scheduling & Event Guidelines Manual outlines the policies, procedures, and facility information that governs the use of the facilities by both internal and external clients. Please review it before submitting your event request.
Events at the new Northeast Portland campus will be very limited during the 2023-24 academic year to minimize disruption to our campus renovations. For information regarding events and spaces, contact UO Portland Event Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The list of caterers offers a variety of meal service options at multiple price points. This requirement protects the community by guaranteeing that food served is prepared in a commercially licensed kitchen by certified and licensed staff members. It also ensures that all caterers are operating in compliance with local Health Department regulations, as well as meeting the White Stag Block’s sustainability initiatives as a LEED certified building. If you would like to use a caterer who is not listed, please contact the event manager. Catering exceptions are subject to approval.
Permission to serve alcoholic beverages on the University of Oregon in Portland facilities must be granted prior to any event.
