DSPT Facilities Use Policies

Facilities Request Form

DSPT will accept requests for use of our facilities for uses that are in line with the Mission of our School.

DSPT Blackfriars Gallery

All facilities requests (including those from DSPT Staff, Faculty & Students and WDP Friars) must be approved by the Office Manager. Please fill out the Facilities Request Form.

Priority for facilities use will always be given to DSPT events, those being hosted by staff, faculty, and current students of the School, and friars of the WDP. A secondary “priority” is given to GTU requests for use of the school, first for courses and second for any events that we judge to be in line with our mission.

When space is available, we will approve events being run by DSPT alumni and donors, Diocese and parish organizations, or other outside groups.

Art Exhibits:

If you are interested in having your artwork or collection exhibited at the Dominican School, go to the Blackfriars Gallery Information and Guildelines for Artists Page.
