Requesting Spaces in CSAM

When classes are not in session, select rooms in CSAM buildings may be made available to other MSU and recognized MSU-affiliate and relevant external organizations for purposes that are consistent with, or enhance the mission of, the University and are in the interest of the College and academic community. CSAM reserves the right and holds the authority to define and determine the appropriateness of all requests to use the facility.

Room Availability

Select rooms and spaces in CELS and the Sokol Room in Science Hall may be reserved for special events by CSAM departments, MSU departments/divisions, MSU-affiliated organizations or relevant external organizations. The Atrium/Patio and lecture rooms are available for uses external to the College of Science and Mathematics and outside the core mission of the University with appropriate facility use charges as outlined in the CELS Use and Rental Policy.

Request for Use

A request for use of the facility by an organization that is directly affiliated with a University department must be submitted by the sponsoring University department. The sponsoring University department must demonstrate their link with the organization and how they will be involved in development, support and management of the event and must receive substantial credit as a co-sponsor of the event on all publicity materials.
