Hall Space Reservations
Residence halls are facilities that house students. As such, students have a certain right to and expectation of privacy, safety and security. For this reason, the Office of Residence Life has a limited number of spaces that are available for reservation by University-recognized student organizations, offices and student residents only. These spaces are located in publicly accessible areas in the residence halls. Areas located in secure residential corridors are not available for use by University-recognized student organizations or offices. Spaces in residence halls may not be utilized for sleepovers. Other limited exceptions to the Residence Life Space Reservation Policy may be made with approval from the Director of Residence Life or her/his designee. No area in a residence hall is available for use by groups not affiliated with the University without the approval of the Director of Residence Life.
