Booking the Redpath Museum Auditorium

A $100 fee will be levied for any items left behind at the Museum after the event. It is the event organizer's responsibility to fully clear the area of all items related to the event. 

Requests to serve alcoholic beverages at events must be made through this form (for McGill organizations) or by contacting McGill Events (non-McGill organizations).
