The Thomas K. McKeon Center for Creativity Event Hall, conference room, and outdoor spaces are available to outside groups on a limited basis and upon the approval of the Center Dean. Priority is given to events that are free and open to the public with an emphasis on art, design, communication, education, and/or creativity. Private events, such as weddings, receptions, parties, and reunions, cannot be accommodated.
In order to preserve access to the Center for TCC students and faculty, events by external groups cannot be scheduled more than three months in advance, and recurring events (weekly/monthly) cannot be accommodated.
The Event Hall is an exhibition space, with a variety of rotating art exhibits on display throughout the year. If you hold an event in the hall, please expect artwork to be displayed on the walls and/or on display panels. Artwork will not be moved or adjusted to accommodate events. Our event coordinator will help you find a room setup that works with any exhibition that may coincide with your event.
If you would like to exhibit signage, posters, or banners at your event, you will need to provide easels or other freestanding display methods. Hanging items on the walls, windows, or other surfaces is not allowed.
Alcohol is prohibited on the TCC campus. Requests to waive this policy are considered on a case-by-case basis by TCC’s Vice President for Administration and Vice President of Academic Affairs. If a waiver is granted, an alcohol license must be secured through the client’s caterer and be displayed during the event.
Events can be held during TCC operating hours only:
Monday - Thursday: 6:30 a.m. - 10:00 p.m.
Friday: 6:30 a.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Saturday: 6:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Please note: The facility must be cleaned and vacated by the time the building closes. Please plan the end time of your event accordingly. Events that run over their allotted time will be subject to overtime fees.
The Event Hall can hold a maximum of 216 people in theater-style seating and 152 people in banquet-style seating (8-person round tables). Rectangular tables, classroom-style setups, and other combination setups can be arranged upon request.
If you hold an event at the Center for Creativity, you must provide a Certificate of Insurance with minimum liability coverage of $300,000/personal injury and $100,000/property damage, with Tulsa Community College named as additional insured. We cannot proceed with planning your event until this certificate is on file.
If Tulsa Community College is closed due to inclement weather, all events will be cancelled. TCC will not be responsible for any loss associated with cancelled events. We will reschedule your event if desired.
