All Others -- on or off Campus
The preferred method to make room requests within the Berkeley Law community is via the web system, all others should download the room reservation form, fill it out completely, and send it to room planning.

Make your request as far in advance of you event as possible!
Room Planning will make every effort to approve your request as quickly as possible, but is also tasked with other responsibilities. Facilities (room set up) and Media (AV equipment) both require a minimum of three (3) days advance notice AFTER your request has been approved. Requests for rooms on a weekend day MUST be placed at least two weeks in advance as the weekend room opening MUST be arranged with other Campus units and the request must be processed by them. Please plan accordingly.
Fill out the entire form. Every effort will be made to get you the room you request. However, if a specific room is not available, having complete information will aid us in finding an alternate that fits your needs.
All room users are expected to return the room(s) to pre-event condition at the conclusion of the event. Not cleaning up and/or leaving debris or abandoned material in the room(s) after your event is consdered a Room Incident. For non-Boalt users it may cause your room reservation privileges to be revoked and/or trigger additional fees.
Room Incident Examples:
•No clean up after event
•Misuse of facilities, e.g. taking furniture from another event
•Taking a room without a reservation
•Food in a No Food room
A completed and UCPD approved permit must be on display at all events where alcohol is being served
See Alcohol Permits section for application process.
Open Flame and Cooking
NO OPEN FLAME of any kind is permitted for cooking or any other purpose at any event.
No Food or Drink rooms
A small number of rooms are No Food or Drink rooms due to installed features and/or functions that would be damaged by spills. These rooms are: 107, 111, 115, 130, 140 moot court, 170 Koret, 175 Booth, 239C, 239D and 239E.

Table set up in the corridor outside rooms 100, 105 and 110 for events taking place in those rooms is allowed.
Facilities and Media
Both Facilities (room set-up) and Media (AV set-up), should you need them, require a minimum of three working days to fit you into their workload once you have a confirmed reservation. Events are in addition to the classes they are already supporting. Their email addresses appear at the top of every confirmation.
Facilites email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Media email: email@example.com
Decoration and Signs
No signs, banners, posters or decorations may be nailed, tacked or affixed in any way to the interior or woodwork of the rooms or corridors. Way finding sign holders are available from Facilities Services via the email address listed above.
Guidelines: 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 require at least three days' advance notice.)
You must notify us within two business days of the event if you are canceling your reservation or the full fee will remain payable. The School of Law reserves the right to cancel your reservation due to misrepresentation of the event, the speakers, or the advertising. We reserve the right to cancel your reservation for failure to remit payment prior to the event. We reserve the right to assess an additional fee in the event of damage or the need for cleaning beyond normal maintenance.
This reservation is limited to the use of the room/area confirmed only. If you have reserved an outdoor space and the weather turns inclement, you do not automatically have access to other parts of the building without a reservation. You are responsible for making all other arrangements, such as extra chairs or other furniture (facilities) or AV gear for presentation or teleconferencing (media), and so forth, and the room must be cleared before you leave. Storage space is not available.
