Room Arrangement

Standard Room Set-up:
  • The Seminar Room is arranged "Conference" style: Tables arranged in a rectangle with chairs arranged along the perimeter. The chairs and tables are on casters and easy to rearrange. You are responsible for arranging the room and returning it back to how it was found.
  • The Salon is arranged “Auditorium” style: 40 folding chairs will be set up in rows with a center aisle. Chairs are rented from Facilities.

This is a shared space which hosts hundreds of events during the academic year. We are not responsible for resetting the room before your event or between events.
