Use of Space

Use of Buntrock Commons space is determined by procedures established by the Director of the Commons. In general, the use of space, and appropriate fees for usage of space, will be tied to the role the organization plays in advancing the mission of the College. Guidelines have been established for priority regarding use of public space, fees related to use, student office space, vendor and solicitation relationships, non-campus organizations, sale of items and other relevant concerns related to the use of the Commons.

Priority of Use

In most cases, users of the Commons will be granted space in order of the following priority:

  1. St. Olaf students, faculty, staff, and emeriti.
  2. Other college related friends: e.g. alumni and parents
  3. General public: e.g.,local businesses and organizations, local churches, civic groups and schools
