Reserving Space-Jared L. Cohon University Center at Carnegie Mellon University - Carnegie Mellon University

Reserving Space in the CUC

Most spaces in the Cohon University Center can be reserved using our online scheduling system (login required). Please direct any questions regarding CUC reservations to the Scheduling Office (x8-1853)

The CUC Scheduling Office is not responsible for reservations in academic buildings. For any questions regarding reservations in academic buildings, send an e-mail to esrooms@andrew.cmu.edu.

Submitting requests

Requests made via 25Live are not considered scheduled until you have received a confirmation e-mail from the Scheduling Office. Once you have placed a request, do not edit your event in 25Live.

Please note that all requests must be made at least two business days before the date of the event. CUC spaces can be reserved only by student organizations or academic departments between the hours of 8 a.m. and midnight, and may not be reserved for class-related purposes.

Event setups

When placing a request for space, please include all setup needs. Please be as detailed as possible, especially if you are not using a standard setup. If you need to make any changes to your setup, contact the Scheduling Office.

CUC staff will handle all setup requests. Standard furniture and amenities will incur no additional fees. CUC staff will rent additional amenities (such as high cocktail tables, stages, etc.) through an outside company and charge the cost to your organization.

Projection and sound

You are responsible for renting any media services (projection, microphones, speakers, etc.) you need for your event. Please view our Multimedia Services page for more information.

Catering/food service

Catering for events must be provided by University Catering or a university-preferred vendor, as indicated in our event policies. You will be charged a fee for using other caterers.

If your organization is providing food, you must follow the CUC's food safety policy.

Changes/cancellations

Contact the Scheduling Office with any changes to your reservation, including setup changes, time changes, or cancellations. Do not attempt to make any changes to your reservation in 25Live, as that may drop your reservation from our scheduling system.
