Time Availability

As our rooms are used for University classes, there are some restrictions on the times that they are available for rental. The rooms in Mary Gates Hall are usually unavailable while school is in session, which is traditionally 8:00am to 5:00pm, Monday through Friday during the academic year. However, the Commons is available the entire day on many days. Please contact our office for exact availability.
