The fall semester is in full swing, and we are busy hosting in-person, virtual and hybrid events with rental customers, student groups and our Libraries colleagues.  

Here are a few things that you should keep in mind if you are hosting an event:

  • Rooms should be used as-is until further notice. If you need to rearrange the furniture, please be sure you reset the room before you leave.  
  • If you are hosting a hybrid event, we recommend using room 150, 165 or 305D for the best experience. Please work with IT to determine how to manage virtual access for your event. 
  • The O&E team will continue to support event logistics, set up Zoom webinars and add event information to our website.  
  • If you are hosting a public event, please complete the Public Program Planning Form at least two weeks prior to your event. Completing the form will also trigger support from Marketing & Communications. 

Please note: The ADs are working with IT to test the technology in meeting rooms in Thompson Library. IT will send a separate communication regarding our ability to support hybrid meetings in the future.
