SSRC Room Reservation Guidelines

  • Groups using the conference rooms may arrange the available chairs as they choose, provided that all pieces of furniture are returned to their original positions at the close of the meeting. Furniture may not be moved into or out of the conference rooms.
  • Food and beverages are permitted in the conference rooms. Groups are responsible for cleaning up any spills or crumbs. All food must be removed from the room at the end of the reservation.
  • Leftover food may be left in the SSRC refrigerator for general consumption only if it has been condensed into covered containers, dated, and labelled as “free.” This is a shared refrigerator so please be mindful of others–no large or uncovered platters or bowls, and no food that will spoil quickly (i.e. dressed salads). Please remove or dispose of food that is not fit to be stored.
  • Groups are responsible for leaving the room in a neat and orderly condition.
  • Doors must remain closed while meetings are in session.
