Reservation Procedure

GSRC accepts reservations during the academic year. Reservations will open at the start of the Fall Quarter and will be processed on a first-come first-serve basis throughout the academic year.

  • Please review our building policies and procedures.  By submitting a request, you agree to follow policies and procedures when using GSRC spaces for formal and informal purposes.
  • Submitting a request does not serve as an official confirmation of a room request reservation.
  • All requests are subject to review. Please allow GSRC staff respond at least 1 week to respond to your request.
  • GSRC spaces are available to reserve throughout the Fall, Winter, and Spring Quarters, while classes are in session. GSRC will review Summer reservations requests on a case-by-case basis. Please email with your summer request.

Email with any questions you have.

Virtual EMS

Student Organizations, students, and on-campus departments must have an active Virtual EMS reservation account to reserve space in our three spaces.

  • Virtual EMS must identify you as someone who can make reservations for a specific group(s)
  • Virtual EMS requestor must be the same name as the contact name (i.e., you may not make reservations for someone else using your group’s name or your name)
  • You must register with your Northwestern University email account.
  • If you are a student that is unaffiliated with a student organization and want to reserve as space, please create an Virtual EMS account and use "MSA Student Client" as the department you are authorized to make a request on behalf of.
  • Please note, the GSRC will purge all users registered a "MSA Student Client" during the summer. Unaffiliated students will need to make a new request to be added to the MSA Student Client list every Fall.
