  2. Date and Time is a required field. Click on the date to add the date of your event and use the drop down menus to enter the actual start and end time. You will have the option to add additional time before your event for set up and after your event for take down in the Event Details section of the form.

Step 8 select date and time

  1. Repeating Pattern (not available for Student Union requests) If your event occurs on more than one date in a set pattern (ie weekly, monthly, etc.) you can click on the Repeating Pattern button. Alternatively, you can click on the calendar to select additional dates on an ad hoc basis.

Step 10 update date and time for reoccurring events (if needed)

  1. Location of your event is a required field. In the Search Locations box type the four- letter abbreviation of the building (i.e. ROCK for Rockwell Hall). If you know the exact room that you are looking for you can also type that (i.e. ROCK 304). Click Search.

Available locations will have a Request button next to the room name. If a location is not available on your requested date(s)/time(s) or the room’s default capacity is below your anticipated attendance, the room will not display.

Click the request button next to the space you want. You can request multiple spaces on the same form.
