We do not book classroom space for May or Summer terms. The window for Fall Semester reservations will open in August. The window for Spring Semester reservations will open in December.


We are able to reserve classroom spaces in Campbell Hall, Lazenby Hall, Hitchcock Hall, Independence Hall and the Enarson Classroom Building only.
