We’re excited to welcome students, faculty and staff to the 2020-21 academic year.

To ensure the health of our staff and the university community, we have established temporary policies and procedures. Please read carefully the following information before requesting a reservation.

Due to the seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be enforcing these policies and procedures strictly. Failure to adhere to them will result in loss of event and reservation privileges for the remainder of the semester.

Step 1 | Plan your meeting

Virtual meetings

We recommend that, when possible, you host your meetings virtually. This protects the health of our staff and the university community. Suggested video conferencing applications include Zoom and Skype. Contact the LTS Help Desk if you would like more information and options.
