Start of the Academic Year Room Reservations

08/20/2004

As faculty, staff, and students return to the Ithaca College campus, most people begin planning for the coming year.

As a result, many people and organizations are starting to request room reservations. This rush of requests places a significant burden on the staff processing reservations, especially since the student assistants are not yet trained.

Please be advised that for the first two weeks of the semester (through Friday, September 3) the normal 48 (working) hour turn around time for room reservation requests will be extended to a 72 (working) hour response time.

In the meantime, please remember that Conference and Event Services accepts room reservation requests 18 months prior to the event. Our goal is to accommodate as many requests as possible by planning ahead and using space appropriately. Please submit your requests via e-mail at roomres@ithaca.edu. Please include the following:

Your name
The sponsoring organization or department
Your address and telephone number
The event title, date, and time
The preferred location (and an alternate if possible)
And the expected attendance.
You will receive an e-mail confirming your reservation once the request has been approved. Please read and save this e-mail.

As you know, space on campus is at a premium. If you have reserved a space and you discover that it is no longer needed, please cancel your reservation so the space may be released for the use of others.

Thank you for your patience and support. We look forward to working with you in planning your future events.
