Space in Hosmer, Chase, Starr & Knight Buildings

For campus room reservations outside the library building, fill out the ‘Room Reservation Request’ form and indicate ‘Pending Room Requests’ in the calendar dropdown.

Additional event planning information is located here, including room layouts.

If you know you need technology assistance, please clearly indicate it on the space request form. In addition, there is a separate form for reserving technology for an event, class or meeting.

It typically takes a few days to approve space so the further in advance you reserve a space, the better. We also find, the more information the better as well.

Space in Library Building

Reserving space in the library is separate from the rest of campus because the library is used in many different ways by many different groups of people. We work hard to balance everyone’s different informational, research and study needs.

Classrooms, Conference Rooms, Study Rooms, 3rd Floor Lounge and Outdoor Patio

The easiest way to reserve classrooms, conference rooms and study rooms is to use the ‘Room Reservation Request’ in the campus online reservation system. Indicate ‘Library Study Room’ in the ‘calendar’ dropdown.

You can also email, call us at (860) 570-5200 or stop by the main desk on the 3rd floor.
