Requesting Space

Certain spaces in both Annette Caldwell Simmons Hall and Harold Clark Simmons Hall are available to reserve for meetings and events.

To request meeting/event space in Annette Caldwell Simmons Hall (ACSH) or Harold Clark Simmons Hall (HCSH), please provide the following information to Rose Chavez at

  • Time and date of event (& include sufficient pre-event and post-event time for your set-up and tear down)
  • Number of expected attendees
  • AV requirements (computer, projection screen, DVD player, etc.)?
  • Catering?
  • A credit card number (external groups) or ORG number (SMU groups)
  • External groups must have an SMU Sponsor to host an event in the Simmons School

Room Reservation Contracts

There are three different contracts for different groups. They can be downloaded below.

  1. SMU Group Contract
  2. External Group with SMU Sponsor Contract
  3. Student Group Contract (*please note that students are only able to reserve classrooms in HCSH)

Classroom Scheduling

Departments are expected to observe SMU’s standard class-schedule blocks (see attached) in scheduling classes. MWF classes start on the hour with the 1st class of the day beginning at 8 a.m. T/TH classes start every hour and a half with the 1st class of the day beginning at 8 a.m. Unless you plan to use all of multiple block times to deliver your class/event, please do not schedule at irregular times such that you render use of a preceding or following class block impossible; for example, don’t schedule a MWF class from 8:30 – 9:30. Since it is sometimes difficult to schedule classes in Annette Hall and Harold Hall during SMU’s peak classroom hours (10 a.m. - 2 p.m.), the departments are encouraged to distribute their classes evenly throughout the day.

If you need to reserve a room for an event and neither Annette nor Harold can accommodate your event, other venues are available on campus, including Hughes-Trigg, which offers event rooms at no-cost to most SMU programs (refer to Please consult Rose Chavez for recommendations. If you plan to offer an event that requires staging before the event and tear-down after, be sure to reserve sufficient time for all 3 activities. The room/space will only be available to you during the period of time you reserve it.

Reserving rooms can unfortunately be competitive. Given this, rooms are assigned in observation of the following priorities.

  • 1st rights: Credit classes: Simmons School. Note: If Annette 218 is requested for any credit-bearing course on campus (Simmons or otherwise), evidence of a plan to use the room’s unique technology in course delivery will elevate the request above those that do not utilize the technology. See below.
  • 2nd: Credit classes: other SMU schools
  • 3rd: Non-credit classes: Simmons School
  • 4th: Events: Simmons
  • 5th: Events: SMU Administration (Provost and above)
  • 6th: Events: SMU
  • 7th: Non-credit classes: SMU non-Simmons, including CAPE & Cox
  • 8th: External Events with Simmons partners
  • 9th: External Events with non-partners

Once classes are scheduled in Simmons buildings, they are only moved in order to accommodate Simmons-wide events and those of the Provost and President—not otherwise. Classes that have been moved under these circumstances will receive priority reassignment, although they may have to be assigned to other campus buildings.
