Space Requests

Please note that 2 weeks are needed to process most space requests, especially those with room set-up needs. Certain Student Life spaces have a little more scheduling flexibility. These spaces include the Student Life Large Conference Room, Student Life Boardroom and Stars Lounge.

As a registered student organization, groups are able to use University facilities at no cost to them (exceptions of Studio Theater and Sangamon Auditorium). The Student Organization Center and the Office of Student Life work with other campus departments to coordinate and reserve spaces for Registered Student Organizations. Registered Student Organizations must have a space confirmation from Student Life/SOC in order to use any University space. SOC/Student Life suggests 4 weeks lead time in your request to ensure the requested space can be obtained. Most spaces on campus have a 2 week minimum and any event that requires a set-up must be turned in 1 week in advance so that workers can be scheduled for the set. Space requests submitted less than 7 days in advance must be accepted “as-is” meaning that there can be no set up or tear down completed Students are not allowed to do their own set-ups per University Policy. Registered Student Organizations must bring their space confirmations with them in order to hold their event.

Recurring Events Policy

Many student organizations meet frequently, or have recurring practices and events. If an organization requests multiple dates and times for the duration of a semester, the space will be confirmed for the first 8 occurrences of the event or practice, with the remainder being placed on-hold for the requesting organization. The actual usage of the space and time will be evaluated as the first 8 occurrences of the request proceed and the usage will be evaluated and taken into account in confirming the remaining recurrences.
