Conference & Event Services
Event Planning for BGSU Groups
Conference & Event Services offers planning for spaces in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union, Olscamp Hall, Prout Chapel and several academic buildings.
Requests for the Bowen-Thompson Student Union and Olscamp Center are accepted beginning on February 15th for student organizations and March 1st for BGSU departments for the next academic year. Requests for events occurring during the summer are processed after October 1st of the previous year. Institutional needs are given priority in every semester. Requests for academic space are fulfilled once space assignments for academic courses are complete; usually mid-summer for the fall semester, and the end of December for the spring semester. Reservations are filled on a “first come - first serve” basis. A minimum of two (2) weeks is required prior to a proposed event.
