Sparta Center

The Sparta Center is a service offered through the Office of Student Activities & Leadership for student organizations to request disposable and non-disposable event supplies to make sure their events go off without a hitch! Many of the Sparta Center products are certified compostable and we strive to be as sustainable as possible. 

Sparta Center is funded by:

  • The Undergraduate Student Government
  • The Undergraduate Diversity Collaborative
  • IFC/Panhel
  • The Graduate Student Council


The SPARTA Center has various kinds of supplies that can be reserved for use during events and programs. For a list of items offered, please see below. 

PPE supplies will be available in limited quantities for student organizations for the 2021-2022 academic year. 

The Sparta Center has also expanded our outdoor game options for the 2021-2022 AY!
