Peterson heritage center

The Peterson Heritage Center (PHC), built in 2001 as the hub for the 2002 Winter Olympics Athlete Village, now serves over 2,000 Heritage Commons residents. With a dining hall, HRE desk and mailroom, and multiple rooms for meetings and events, the PHC is always lively and a great location to host your next event.


Previously a bath house for a campus swimming pool, the Hive is now a campus pizzeria, filling residents' late night cravings. In addition to the food, the patio, volleyball and basketball courts provide additional entertainment for our residents and their guests. The Hive is available to be rented prior to 6 PM during the Academic Year.


Kahlert Village, our newest residence hall, opening in 2020, serves over 900 residents. Priority for facility use is given first to classroom needs, and second to the programs and activities of campus partners and Housing & Residential Education (HRE). Availability of classrooms and conference rooms are extremely limited during the week and some event requests may not be granted. Please note that due to construction impacts, only Kahlert Village room 1125 is available for reservation during the 2022 - 2023 academic year.


The Marriott Honors Residential Scholars Community (MHC) is utilized primarily for academics, with priority given to classes and academic needs. Due to robust class offerings, availability of the MHC facilities is very limited and event support is not provided


Groups may table in the lobby of the Peterson Heritage Center or Kahlert Village. Set up includes one table and two chairs. Table coverings may be provided at the PHC upon request. Note: Advance reservations are required.

Cost: Free to student groups and university departments. $100/external organizations.

Priority is given to University departments and student groups at certain times of the year, including Move-In.
