Research Commons Project Room Reservation Guidelines

  • During Research Commons business hours, Project Rooms can only be reserved by OSU faculty, postdocs, and graduate students. After business hours, the project rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • A valid Ohio State Username (name.#) is required to request a room reservation.
  • Reservation requests can be submitted no more than seven days in advance. 
  • Only one room reservation is permitted per day.
  • When no reservations have been made, the Project Rooms are available to graduate students, faculty, and postdocs on a first-come, first-served basis. Please be prepared to vacate the room for the next scheduled reservation.
  • The purpose of these rooms is for collaborative research projects, not individual study, so groups will always have priority for the use of these rooms.
  • For the Conference Room, groups with video-conferencing needs will take priority over groups not making use of the video-conferencing equipment.
  • A group that is more than 15 minutes late forfeits their reservation.
  • Although these rooms provide a more private space, sound can leak through the walls. Please keep the noise down so as not to disturb others.
  • All food and drink must be cleaned up before you leave so that the room is ready for the next user.
  • For assitance with the technology available in the Conference and Project rooms, please see our staff at the Research Commons concierge desk.
