Wyckham House is a student-owned building on the Mount Royal University campus, so we have preferred pricing for students and members of the MRU community. Special pricing is also available for not for profit events hosted by members of the greater Calgary and area community. The rental cost covers a flexible eight-hour period.

Performance lighting requires the booking of a lighting technician to install and program on a per-event basis.

Venue Fee

SAMRU may levy a Venue Fee of up to $2.00 per ticket sold to any publicly advertised ticketed venue rental taking place within the Wyckham House Event Centre. This fee will be added onto the Renter’s set ticket price. This fee will be collected on behalf of SAMRU by the ticketing agent and remitted directly to SAMRU.


Wyckham House rentals are available Friday evenings, Saturdays, and Sundays, with limited availability based on the needs of our student membership. Some rentals may go past 10 pm, depending on the circumstances of the rental.
