Space reservation request procedure changes

Ohio University Event Services has revised the procedure by which reservation requests for major event spaces will be submitted, reviewed and accepted for the 2012 – 2013 academic year. This includes any space request that falls between Aug. 15, 2012 and Aug. 14, 2013.

This new procedure only affects reservation requests for "Major Event Space" and includes Memorial Auditorium, Galbreath Chapel (currently offline), Walter Hall Rotunda, Baker University Center Ballroom, Theatre, Multi-Purpose Room and the Front Room.  

The new process establishes a priority user status and timeline and replaces the current process for requesting space one calendar year in advance will no longer exist. Departments and organizations that have in the past hosted standing annual events will need to follow the new protocol for requesting space. Standard meeting room reservations will continue to follow the current process of first come, first served by calling Baker University Center Reservations 740-593-4021. This includes meeting rooms on the second floor of Baker University Center.  

Reservation requests can be submitted through a new online request system beginning on March 7, 2012 for academic year 2012 – 13. An online account must be created before requests can be made. Training is available in person or online by calling 740-593-4021 or by signing up at https://commerce.cashnet.com/ohioestrain.
