The Arboretum is available for events!  Reservations are required for events & rentals including but not limited to: weddings, professional photography, filming, field trips, and tours.  These activities are not permitted without a reservation.

Our reservation process applies to all events held at the Arboretum as defined by the University grounds use policy:

“Other than uses for casual recreational or social activities, reservations must be made for the use of buildings and grounds under the control of the University, including University sidewalks (an “Event”) .”  (Section B., University of Alabama Facilities and Grounds Use Policy). 

If you are uncertain as to whether your activity qualifies as an event and requires a reservation, please contact us at ua.arboretum@ua.edu.  Violators of this policy may asked to leave and the university police department (UAPD) may respond to assist with enforcement.

The conduct of these events should comply with the policies of The University of Alabama and The University of Alabama Arboretum. Events will be scheduled at the discretion of the Arboretum Director, with consideration for the ecological integrity of the Arboretum and priority given to events related to its mission, academic classes, outreach programs, and other University of Alabama sponsored groups.

Please read the rental agreement and look at our rental rates for more information about our policies.
