Due to COVID-19 and public health guidance, the university is not permitting any in-person events or gatherings to be held on campus for the 2020 fall semester. As we prepare for the next phase and reopening, not knowing when that may be, we are making sure all spaces will be setup socially distanced. This however means all space capacities will be significantly smaller than normal. Due to sanitation and touch points, we will prepare all meeting spaces to be set with fixed set-ups and will not be changed throughout the day. Rooms will be used as is and furniture may not be moved. Everyone must follow whatever university guidelines are in place at the time we do begin allowing gatherings and events.
In an effort to help you think ahead about spaces and how they are setup or look differently with new socially distanced capacities, we are providing some basic examples below. Please know some of our larger spaces may be needed for academic courses based on what the demands and volume are when we do open for in-person courses and events.
Please see the list of the rooms below and the possible fixed set-ups with the new capacities which will more than likely be in place when we open and permit gatherings and events.

Please review the campus grounds policies before planning an outdoor event.
General Pool Classrooms
Other than when classes are in session, general pool classrooms may be requested and used for meetings, speakers, lectures, and other programming needs of an academic nature. Classrooms are requested through the on-line site, but are scheduled and confirmed through the Office of the Registrar.
