      • If you would like a recurring event (weekly meetings), add each date and time to your form. 
    • Can we select a specific room for our meetings? 
      • Be sure to include a room number if you would like a specific room. 
    • I did not get the room I requested. Why did this happen? 
      • We will typically attempt to get the room you are asking for. If that is not available, we will try something in the same building, and if that is not available, we will try for something comparable before denying a request. 

    • I must make a change to the event I submitted. Can I do this? 
      • Please do your best not to alter a pending or existing request. Doing so will "start over" the process on your request. 

    • How long will it take for my event to be approved? 
      • Please allow 5 business days minimum to process basic events (meetings, information tables, etc.) and 10-20 business days minimum for more detailed events (groups having food, outdoor events, weekend events, 5Ks, events with amplified sound, large-scale events, etc.).
