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 made available, by reservation, for meetings and other events.

  • Only Berkeley Law faculty, departments, centers, and registered student organizations in good standing may book 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 UCPD 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.

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, allow a minimum of 48 hours for processing.
  • 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 that request must be processed by them.
  • Please plan accordingly.


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 informational 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 the Law School.
