What constitutes a "Special Event" reservation rather than a room reservation? If your event meets one or more of the following criteria, it is considered a "Special Event":

  • Any student group that is charging an admission to the event they are holding must reserve the space as a "Special Event" reservation.
  • Any non-student group or student group inviting non-students to participate must reserve the space as a "Special Event" reservation.
