Residential Services manages a number of reservable spaces that exist to benefit residential students. The primary audience for events hosted in reservable spaces managed by Residential Services is residents of the Area in which the space is located, with more leeway provided to requests for outdoor space. The principle used to make reservations divides the reservable time in one day into thirds:
- Open access for residents
- Area-wide programming
- Residence-based instruction and academic support
- All users and activities within residential facilities must comply with all policies and procedures outlined in the current Student Handbook.
- Guests cannot remove furniture from the space. If a specific furniture set-up is required, please include details in the “other notes” section of the request form. The sponsoring host is financially responsible, at the cost of $50.00 per hour, for unanticipated resetting of any furniture or equipment.
- Guests need to sort all trash and recycling into appropriate bins before the end of the event. The sponsoring host is financially responsible, at the cost of $50.00 per hour, for excessive cleaning.
Virtual tours are available for many of our spaces. Please click on the name of the space below to begin your tour. Please follow University guidelines for COVID-19 when using these spaces.
