Library Administrative Manual

6.3.2 Guidelines for Requesting Use of Library Events Room


The Events Room is a flexible space located in room 121 on the 1st floor, outside the security gates of the Main Library. SF State-affiliated administrative offices, departments, institutes or programs may request use of the Events Room, pending approval by Library Administration. The Events Room is not available for students to schedule. A faculty adviser can reserve the room for campus student organizations provided that the advisor is present during the event.


  • Reservation Limits: Generally, the room may be reserved up to 2 times per month per group.
  • Condition of Room: It is the responsibility of the person reserving a room to ensure that all furniture and equipment are returned to the arrangement found at the beginning of the session and that the doors are closed and locked when finished with the room.
  • Cancellations/ No Shows: The person making the reservation is responsible for cancelling reservation if group is unable to use the room on scheduled date/time.
  • Food and Drink: Food and drinks are allowed, but all trash must be removed and the room left clean.
  • Loss of Privileges: Failure to follow these guidelines may result in no longer being able to reserve the Events Room for the remainder of the semester.
