Reserve the Center

Student groups, faculty and staff may request to reserve the Center for meetings, speakers, workshops, film showings, performances and other special events. The event must be in some way related to the mission of the Center, which is to provide a space in which Pacific Islander students can gather, meet, and study, as well as for any others (students, faculty and staff) who have an interest in the region to use the facility as a way to learn about the region. Generally meetings and events must be held during hours that the Center is not open for student use, and is subject to staff availability.

To submit a request to reserve the Center, submit the online Facility Request Form. Before submitting a request, please read the Facility Use Policy.
