General Use Guidelines

Appropriate Uses

Space is reserved as is. Up to 2 additional 6-foot tables can be requested for reservations with catering contracts. Please indicate if you will need additional tables in your request.

Cleaning Policy

Groups are responsible for restoring the space to its original condition upon the conclusion of their event. Failure to clean up will result in a re-evaluation of the group’s reservation privileges.

Recyclable items should be placed in the appropriate receptacle located in the Kitchenette.

All large items (i.e. pizza boxes) must be broken down and placed in a suitable trash can in or out of the Multicultural Programs Lounge (MPL).
