Leasing Policy Statement
The University of Minnesota will not, under any circumstances,
permit the unrestricted use of its property by non-University
entities. Use of University property by non-University entities requires
a written agreement. An event that involves using University
property may or may not be cosponsored by the University. If scheduling
conflicts arise, University programs have priority. Equal opportunity
to use University property must be given to groups of different
opinions or views. A lease or use agreement does not indicate official University
sanctions or agreement with the policies, goals or opinion of
the non-University group.
Lease and Use Agreement Training
The Leasing Team leads a training session that introduces University departments and units to the policies and practices required for leasing both University and non-University space for all purposes.
