NOTE: Those individuals who wish to rent a college facility, and plan to serve food, are required to utilize our campus food service vendor, Parkhurst.

What if I want my event live-streamed?

Currently, Centre College does not offer live-streaming for the campus. We recommend that you request your event be videotaped which can then be uploaded to Panopto (Centre’s video server) which will allow you to create a public link to share. 

I really want my event live-streamed. Do I have any options?

Centre partners with AVT on providing professional grade, higher-end, multi-camera video recording and live-streaming support for events for an additional cost. Todd Sheene can work with you and AVT to plan out your event. Please contact Todd at or ext. 5290.   Please note: AVT requires at least a minimum of three weeks in order to properly prepare for your event.
