"Your Entertainment Source for the Residence Halls"

Prime Time Productions (PTP) is the major programming organization for University Housing. PTP is comprised of emerging leaders and upper-class students that are chosen through an application/interview process in the spring. This six-member student board handles everything from publicity to sound and lights to the booking of professional entertainers. Since 2007, PTP has been recognized both regionally and nationally for their innovative programs and outstanding board members.

Mission Statement

Prime Time Productions strives to strengthen and embody the overall mission of University Housing and Food Service community by developing programs that entertain and enrich the educational and social lives of residence hall students. Members are committed to providing a variety of intentional activities in a welcoming environment that upholds the overall department’s commitment to diversity and social justice. Members are given the opportunity to achieve personal growth, develop leadership skills, and build new relationships throughout the academic year.


The purpose of PTP is to provide late night, weekend entertainment to all students living in University Housing. PTP brings to the halls pre-home released films, comedians, bands, hypnotists, mentalists, magicians, speakers, and a whole lot more! PTP also works together to plan and execute major event weeks and weekends on campus, such as Wildcat Welcome Week, Family Weekend, Residence Hall Spirit Week, and Welcome Back Week. PTP is supported by each resident who lives in the residence halls and University Village, so all events are free to residence hall students. PTP is an active member in the National Association for Campus Activities, thus connecting residents to agents, performers, and other participating schools across the nation. Residents can seek employment in PTP when applications are given out during the spring semester.
