Helium Usage

Campus Events + Entertainment allows registered student organizations to use helium for free. The helium tanks are located in the Student Programs office and can only be used between the hours of 8am and 6pm Monday through Friday.

To request to use helium, please contact Leslie Hay at leslie@universityunions.utexas.edu, with:

  • your name
  • organization name
  • the date and time you wish to come by
  • and how many balloons you wish to fill. 

You will be contacted to let you know if your desired date and time are available. 

Contact us for more information (select Helium Usage in the subject line)

Please note that the Student Programs office does not provide balloons, string, balloon weights, garbage bags for carrying balloons, etc, to any group. Please bring everything you need with you to the Student Programs office for filling up balloons.

Note: The Student Programs office, housed on the fourth floor of the Texas Union building, was previously the location for the Student Events Center.
