Room Reservations

Berkeley Law (Boalt Hall) rooms and facilities that are not scheduled for use by classes or class related activities are available by reservation for meetings and other events on a first-come, first-served basis. Only individuals or groups deemed by the school to be consistent with its research and educational mission may rent or use Berkeley Law facilities. Facilities must be used in accordance with all federal, state, and local laws, including ADA regulations, as well as in accordance with university policies and procedures. Full details about room reservations can be found on this page.

When requesting a room reservation, please make sure you include the following information:

     1. Event date
     2. Event start time (plus set up time)
     3. Event end time (plus take down time)
     4. Will food be served?
     5. Will alcohol be served? (requires two or three weeks notice)
     6. Total expected attendance (please list speakers or dignitaries who may have security needs)
     7. List specific room request or special room needs (e.g. teleconference)

Guidelines

Berkeley Law Community
Faculty, centers, clinics, programs, student organizations, and other school units may request use of class or conference rooms. Please make your request well in advance of the event so that any reservation conflicts or other issues may be resolved and other services may be ordered in a timely fashion. (Both media and facilities require three business days' advance notice; alcohol permits require ten business days to process.) You may email your request to Edwin Bish at roomplanning@law.berkeley.edu or, if you have a reservation account established you can visit the the room request site: Boalt Room Requests on the Web. Student groups and journals should read this page before making a request.
  
Outside Groups
Law firms, law examination firms, and other off-campus groups may rent classrooms. Please make your request well in advance of the event so that any reservation conflicts, billing, or other issues may be resolved and other services may be ordered in a timely fashion. (Both media and facilities request seven days' advance notice.) To make a request please download the room reservation form, fill it out completely, and send it to roomplanning@law.berkeley.edu.

Non-Boalt and Off-Campus Event Spaces

Due to the full class schedule at the Law School space is very limited. Should you not be able to procure a room at the Law School, we have compiled a list of other spaces available for rent on and off campus for your consideration. Note: this is for information only and does not endorse any individual facility. If you wish to schedule an event at one of these facilities contact that facility directly for rates and details. Click here to download this document.

When planning an event off campus, please note: The contract review process is changing. Until decisions have been made by central campus about how to manage these actions in a BearBuy environment, please send your off-campus entertainment and event contracts and agreements to Business Services. Jeff Kent will facilitate the required review and authorization from the most appropriate campus office for your event type, as well as assist with other aspects for your off-campus event.
