To request a space, follow the appropriate guidelines below.
Registered Organizations and Registered Student Organizations
To request a space as a RSO you will need to first fill out a form with the Student Engagement office (formerly the RSO office) online through their ENGAGE portal. Once the Student Engagement office provides event approval, your request will then be routed to Facility Management and Scheduling (FMS) electronically for space consideration. Confirmations will come directly from our office.
Due to changes with the event approval process, a reduction in available space and campus safety considerations, please note the following limitations/changes:
- All requests require a minimum of three (3) business days advance notice. This time starts when FMS receives the form. Since there is additional processing time at the Student Engagement Office, it is best to submit requests at LEAST one week before your event date.
- To allow all groups access to event space, we reserve the right to limit or ask for modifications for space requests that involve a large number of rooms prior to confirmation.
If you’re a University Organization (a college, department, division, or other academic administrative unit), please use our online event templates to request a space (no login required). The box in the upper right corner contains links to our request forms. Please note, you must be on a UIUC network computer or UIUC VPN to access. When using VPN, you must have your group setting as “Tunnel All”.
