Classroom and Meeting Space Reservations

University meeting, classroom and facility spaces vary in size, set-up and price. We offer a range of spaces from an outdoor amphitheater with a stage and two large theatre/auditoriums seating 200 and 388 all the way to classrooms of varying sizes with tablet desks and fixed or moveable tables, conference rooms with center tables, and a variety of meeting lounges in the residence halls.

 

 

Additional Meeting Space Information

--

All spaces have a minimum rental time of two hours per space, per day in order to cover staffing and room set-up expenses associated with hosting your event at a specific location.

--

Meeting spaces can be contracted for both residential and non-residential conferences groups. We do host day only meetings during the summer months if space is available after residential conference groups have made their requests.

--

Final meeting and event space requests are due two weeks prior to the start of your conference program. Any changes to the date, time and/or location of your meeting space request after this date are subject to an additional 5% service charge.

--

Classrooms and meeting spaces do not automatically include a wireless connection. A request for internet use and wireless connectivity must be made two weeks in advance if needed.

The Office of Information Technology's Help Desk can be reached at 202-885-2550 if on-site assistance is needed.

All meeting and classroom spaces are fully accessible for mobility considerations. Please consult your Campus Conference Manager for suggested accessible routes to and from event spaces.

The Office of Public Safety is responsible for locking and unlocking any meeting spaces you have reserved during the early morning or late evening hours.

To request an officer's assistance while on campus, please contact the Department of Public Safety by calling 202-885-2527.

American University Summer School classes are typically held between 5:00pm and 9:00pm each weeknight during the summer months, so classroom reservations during this time period may be limited. Conference groups are encouraged to plan their schedule to use classrooms in the morning and/or afternoons during the week. Weekend availability is less restricted.
