Reservation Policies
  • Classes have priority over events.
    • Rooms are only booked for the current quarter unless the full class schedule and priority school events for the next quarter have been assigned rooms in RES.
    • Requests submitted in advance will not be confirmed until classroom assignments are complete. Events that recur across more than one academic quarter should be submitted separately.
  • Allow an extra 15 minutes before and after your event.
    All requests must allow at least 15 MINUTES before and after the event for equipment setup, tear down, and people entering and exiting the room. If your requested reservation time starts/ends less than 15 minutes before/after another event in the same room, your request will be denied and you will be asked to change your reservation time or room.
  • Rooms are assigned based on capacity, availability, event conflicts and order received. 
    Classrooms are scheduled at the discretion of the room coordinators on a first-come, first-served basis. You may be assigned an alternate room depending on event size, room capacity, or other considerations.
  • Wait for email confirmation of your request before announcing the room of your event.
    • Please allow up to 2 business days to process your request.
    • Even if a room appears open on the calendar, there may be pending requests for the room.
    • Room trades are not allowed. If you are releasing your reserved room please cancel the reservation using RES.
