Room Use Policies

Rooms may not be scheduled for course instruction or to hold office hours.

IUB Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Students may schedule rooms:

  • 7 days in advance, but no less than 24 hours in advance
  • for a maximum of 3 times per week; and
  • for a maximum of 2 hours for use by faculty, staff, and graduate students

Undergraduates working on research projects with a faculty sponsor may ask that their sponsor book a room on their behalf. The faculty member will be responsible for booking the room, providing the names of the students using the room, and the topic/title of their research project. The faculty member overseeing the project will be held accountable for any damage to the room or misconduct by the students while using the room.

The rooms are available on a first come, first served basis and reservations are not required or permitted during the following times:

  • Monday-Thursday after 7pm
  • Friday after 5pm
  • All day Saturday & Sunday

Patrons without a reservation will be asked to vacate the room in the event another individual or group has the room scheduled, whether it is listed on the print schedule or online.

You will receive a confirmation email with room number and reservation date/time.
