Undergrad and Northwood Residential Space Use Protocol, Process, and Requests
University Housing deems the entire residence hall, including lounge spaces, as home to those who live there.
(If you are seeking space in the Munger Graduate Residence Hall, please see this page).
Individual residents, resident groups and departments with a living/learning affiliation may host functions in many spaces in the residence halls. It is expected that the hosted function is for the students who live in that community, is exclusive to housing residents of other University housing communities or is for those students participating in a particular living/learning program.
Non-housing affiliated students, groups or departments are asked to seek non-residential space on campus. This link provides some good opportunities.
Residents or Living/Learning programs should have a conversation with the Leadership Team (LT) of the building to discuss, among other things, usage, timing of the event, means of promotion, the use of amplified sound, quiet hour considerations, size of event and appropriate building access.
Residents who are inviting a known guest to their function and into their home must escort that guest while in the building. Mass, public invitations are not permitted.
Regularly occuring meetings are typically not approved so that all students of a community have the opportunity to use space in their home as much as possible.
Reservations for students or groups affiliated with Housing:
This reservation process is for Housing residents and departments with a living/learning affiliation.
Requests sent via this form that are requesting space in residential dining halls, the Community Learning Center, Multiculture and Minority Culture spaces will be forwarded to the appropriate unit for their review and response.
By completion and submission of the online request form, it is assumed that all guidelines stated here are understood and will be followed.
Space Use by Individuals or Organizations Not Affiliated with Housing
Residential space use for individuals, departments and organizations not affiliated with University Housing is considered on a VERY limited exception basis rather than an application basis. Inquires can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org or 734.615.2147.
University Housing reserves the right to bar groups that practice or promote harassment on the basis of race, sex, color, sexual orientation, national origin or ancestry, religion, age, marital status, gender identity, gender expression, disability or veteran status.
All requests are considered on a first-come, first-served basis.
Minority Culture and Multicultural Lounges
Minority Culture or Multicultural Lounges are meant to serve the residents that live within our housing community, therefore, the spaces are not available for outside groups to reserve or use the space. Please direct any questions on the minority culture or multicultural lounges to email@example.com.
These spaces are the Abeng lounge in East Quad, Asubuhi lounge in West Quad, Afro American/Ambatana lounge in South Quad, Gandhi lounge in Oxford, Audre Lorde lounge in Barbour/Newberry, Rosa Parks lounge in Stockwell, Nikki Giovanni lounge in Mosher Jordan, UMOJA lounge in Alice Lloyd, Angela Davis lounge in Mary Markley, Martin Luther King lounge in Bursley, the Grace Lee Boggs lounge in Baits, and the Edward Said Lounge in North Quad. Northwood does not have a minority lounge.
While the multicultural lounges are typically open and available for use only by individual residents and departments with a living/learning affiliation, there are student legacy groups that may also request use of the space.
