Student Organization Use of University Space Process
Submit a Space request via MyBrockport
SUNY Brockport recognizes that meetings, campus activities, and other organized events are important aspects of the quality of student life and its day-to-day operations. The campus community is encouraged to plan and implement events and programs that are consistent with the mission of the University.
The use of campus facilities by student organizations is a privilege, and the policies governing the use of those spaces has been developed through a collaboration with students and staff from Brockport Student Government (BSG), Student Union & Activities, and Conferences and Event Services. These policies outline how to have successful meetings/events and can be found here (Event Policies) and on the Student Union & Activities website and myBrockport page.
Who is allowed to reserve space on campus?
Any student organization recognized by the University (i.e. BSG, Fraternities, Sororities, Club Sports, Academic Honor Societies, etc.) may submit a room reservation request through the process outlined below. Student organizations wishing to utilize campus space that have not yet gained University recognition may work with Student Union & Activities to gain temporary privileges.
What is my organization responsible for when using university space?
The student organization and primary contact for the event (as noted on the reservation form) are responsible for the appropriate use of the space reserved (as outlined in the event policies) and for any damage to University property during the entire length of a given reservation.
*If determined by the Student Union & Activities staff that additional information is needed to grant permission for a requested event, pre-event meetings will be required to discuss additional responsibilities prior to the event as outlined in the Pre-Event meeting policy.
