Meeting Space

Reserving Meeting Space in Housing

Housing and Residence Life staff and the Resident Housing Association (RHA) have priority to reserve spaces. 

UC Merced recognized student groups and campus affiliates (departments, schools and offices) are offered space to use within Housing to host programs and events that are designed to be open to all residents. A usage fee is associated with restricted and closed events.  The staff approving requests will determine which events will be assessed a usage fee.  Spaces within Housing are NOT State funded.

Spaces are not intended for ongoing meetings or rehearsals. Individual requests are required for each program/event.

Reserving Meeting Space in Housing

The Conference and Event Services department in Housing and Residence Life is currently developing 
new policies and procedures along with new room rates for fall 2017.
 
The previous reservation system will no longer accept requests for the California Room, Alpine Room 
and Crescent Arch meeting room. Please contact Debbie Henderson at dhenderson8@ucmerced.edu or call 
209-228-3137 to request a meeting room for your upcoming event.
 
Please Note:
New Meeting Room Rates will be in effect starting October 1, 2017.
 
Conference and Event Services will accept requests for the fall semester starting July 1, 2017.
