The Nexus Reservation Process

The Nexus of Civic Engagement (the Nexus) supports civic engagement activities and offers both reservable and non-reservable spaces.

Reservations are recommended for larger meetings and events. During open hours, the two-person tables are intended for drop-in use and are not reservable. Any areas not currently reserved are also available for drop-in use.

Reservation requests will generally be reviewed within 2 business days. Approval is emailed to the requesting party. If space is not available, this information will be emailed to the requesting party.
