Elson S. Floyd Cultural Center


Due to the layout of space and kitchen use, we will be unable to concurrently schedule different events in the knowledge rooms and living room.  Additionally, use of the living room will automatically include all spaces within the facility, with the exception of the Commercial Kitchen. Charges will vary based on kitchen use.

Rates include basic audio/visual equipment, tables & chairs, and setup & takedown labor in event space; does not include tech labor during the reservation.

Academic Year Reservations 

  • Weekdays - Knowledge Room or Fire Pit reservation requests outside of standard hours of operation (in part or in total) must be for a minimum of 2-hours. Standard policies and rates apply to all other spaces.
  • Weekends - Any space requests must be in conjunction with a Living Room reservation. Standard policies and rates apply.
