Outdoor Reservation Request

There are a number of outdoor spaces on campus that Registered Student Organizations may reserve to set up information tables, program and promote their activities and organizations.

For outdoor spaces the Facilities Management support team provides custodial, landscape, and maintenance services for events taking place on the university campus. In addition to the form required by the Bernhard Center, please note Facilities Management also has a mandatory facility event service request form to determine the required level of support and any associated costs.

If possible, reservations should be made five days prior to the event.

For tables and chair requests, be sure to contact Logistical Services at (269) 387-8811, please note that these requests will need to be made within five days or more of the event date. A fund and cost center number is required to use university tables and chairs.

(only 269 or 616 area codes)
