Please keep the following in mind when you submit your space request:

  • Spaces may not be used for weekly or biweekly student organization meetings.
  • Due to high demand, student organizations unaffiliated with University Housing should limit their events to three or fewer dates per semester.
  • Events held in University Housing spaces should be open to all students. Students should not have to be a member of the requesting student organization to attend an event.
  • There is no charge to use University Housing spaces. No admission or registration fees may be charged for events held in University Housing spaces. Cash donations may not be collected at the door. 
  • Follow all guidelines to ensure proper use of University Housing spaces. All policies of the Code of Student Conduct will be enforced. Failure to follow guidelines may result in loss of privileges to use spaces or in assessed charges to the reserving party.

If you have any questions, please contact

University Housing spaces are provided as-is.

We are unable to provide additional furniture, A/V equipment, or other equipment or items (including but not limited to laptops, table linens, platforms or staging). We are unable to provide on-site event support.

We strongly recommend that you place your request at least 3 weeks prior to your event date. If University Housing is able to accommodate your event, you will receive a confirmation of your reservation via email within 3-5 business days. You may be contacted to request additional information about your event prior to receiving confirmation. Please be aware that submitting a request does not mean that the space is reserved for your event. 

Please read the attached document 'University Housing Space Guidelines' prior to submitting an event request to familiarize yourself with available set-ups, maximum capacities and audio/visual capabilities. Please be aware that A/V support for the space is limited as University Housing does not provide on-site event support. If your event requires A/V, please request additional event time to account for any A/V set-up or testing prior to the start of your event. An HDMI cable and a micro HDMI adapter are located in each room; however, we recommend bringing your own if your device requires a unique cord and as back-up. 

University Housing spaces support the residential student experience and are primarily for the use of University Housing and University Housing affiliated events. First priority is given to those parties; all requests are subject to availability and the discretion of University Housing staff. If a University Housing staff member requests a room for an emergency meeting within 48 hours of the event date, the reserving party with be immediately notified and asked to find another location for their event. When possible, University Housing will try to provide alternative space. There is no charge to use University Housing spaces.

We are working to process your reservation requests as quickly as possible.  Thank you for your patience as we process these in the date order they arrived.
