Non-class related use of rooms for events
Berkeley Law facilities that are not scheduled for use by classes or class-related activities may be available, by reservation, for meetings and other events. Only individuals or groups deemed by the Law 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. Please see release document Rules of Conduct In Campus Buildings for details. The Law School reserves the right to move events from a requested room or cancel events if they become in conflict with the Law School’s priorities.
Please be aware: during Berkeley Law’s review sessions and exam periods no events, including any tours, can be scheduled in any of the Law School’s facilities and only Berkeley Law students are allowed to use the Law Library.
Room Request News Box
New Semesters and Room Requests
The estimated time in which the room request system will open will be 3 to 4 weeks after the start of the new semester. If you have events that will be taking place during that time, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep in mind that no requests may be confirmed until the rooms are released after the class schedule is finalized in the new semester; the event but will be held in the system with an approved status. This holds the space and does not allow another group to reserve “over” your request. However should the room be needed for a law class your event can be bumped by the registrar.

Alternative 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, Room Planning does not schedule events outside of the Law School.

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 confirmed. 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.
