Space Access for Student Groups

Meeting & Event Space

At some point your group will need to secure space to hold either meetings, rehearsals or events. While there are a variety of spaces available to student groups on campus, they are usually in high demand and it is best to plan as early as possible. Space reservations for Lerner Hall, residence lounges, classroom, and outdoor spaces is facilitated by University Events Management. Additional spaces available on campus include the Intercultural Resource Center, the Kraft Center for Jewish Life, and facilities at Barnard CollegeAlternative space options outside of these frequently used venues are also available.  Please remember that different policies apply for reserving space in any of these areas and are subject to change.
