Reservations Now Open!!

Reservations for events starting on September 1, 2022 are now open! All groups of thirteen (13) or more are required to pre-reserve the space by completing the online request form above. Reservations can be made starting one (1) year from the event date and all reservations are accommodated on a first-come-first-served basis. Once completed, Tech Rec staff will process the reservation and will email the next steps to all clients. Event requests are processed during regular business hours (Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.). Please note that an event request submission does not guarantee that the room is available for the date and time you requested.  If the event space is not available, the Tech Rec events team will contact you with an alternative date and/or time. Events are not confirmed until Tech Rec staff receive all required information and the formal event confirmation email has been sent.  

*Please note that supply chain issues could impact the completion of the Tech Rec renovations. In this case, some reservations may be adjusted if supplies and materials do not arrive on time.

  • If another client has reserved Tech Rec on that same day

Reservations outside of normal business hours are allowed at the discretion of the Tech Rec Manager. This includes Sundays, government holidays that are recognized by the institution, and other predetermined closing days throughout the year. Tech Rec is normally closed the week between the end of one semester and the start of another, so these dates would be considered outside normal business hours. Rentals that are approved outside of normal business hours are subject to a $40 per hour staffing fee, which includes up to two staff. 

Set Up Options

Special set up needs can only be accommodated during a full facility rental. During these, only the seating that is currently in the space may be utilized due to space/capacity requirements. The furniture can be rearranged to fit the groups needs but no other tables and chairs can be brought in for seating. Additional six (6) foot tables can be set added for catering needs, but the amount is dependent on other set up needs and the space limitations. The Tech Rec Manager can confirm how many additional tables can be added for each rental after client discusses specific set up needs for each event.
