Available Facilities

Pershing Arena (PB 120)

Organizations attempting to reserve Pershing Arena should be specifically aware of the following policy regarding priority usage:

All reservations by Chartered Campus Organizations, Divisions or Departments may be cancelled if circumstances (i.e. weather) force higher priority groups to move their activity into the requested area.  Athletics and HES have until noon on the day in question to decide to move their activity into the facility.

Groups with reservations that are affected by the priority system should secure a back-up location and understand their reservation may be cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.  Those groups will be promptly notified if their reservation is being cancelled.

There is a limit of two practices and/or meetings that any organization can have in one week.  The only exceptions to this rule are the University Showgirls and the University Cheerleaders as they are required to perform at all home football and basketball games.

Organizations and users must read and agree to the Pershing Arena Usage Policies.  Each organization must submit this form only once per calendar year.

To reserve Pershing Arena, submit a request through EMS (emspro.truman.edu).  Please note that your request does not guarantee your reservation.  Your reservation will not be complete until confirmed by Erin Higgins, ehiggins@truman.edu.
