Reserving a Meeting Room

Reservations for use of all meeting facilities in the Campus Union are to be made through the Office of Campus Life, Room 104 or by calling 575.562.2108. We encourage you to come to the office and make your reservation. You may also print form and bring it to the Campus Life Office. With proper planning, we can assist any group or organization in making an event or activity a success.

All reservation requests should be made at least two weeks in advance of your scheduled event. This will allow for work schedules and proper set-up by the Campus Life staff. If you require a particular set-up beyond our standard set-ups, please provide a detailed drawing of specific instructions. Individuals, groups, departments, or organizations with reservations, which do not plan to use a meeting room, should cancel their reservation at least 48 hours in advance of their scheduled event. Failure to cancel a room reservation may jeopardize future use of the Campus Union for the remainder of the semester. Once the reservation is approved, it will be logged.


Reservation Priorities

All Eastern New Mexico University approved student organizations; administration and faculty are eligible to make reservations for use of the Campus Union for University related events. In addition, on an availability basis, reservation by University related and non-University groups will be permitted. Non-University related activities and reserve from non-university groups will be subject to rental fees. The director of the Campus Union reserves the right to assign facilities based upon the total demand for the facilities and the most effective and efficient use.


Space Guarantee

The Campus Union reserves the right, if deemed necessary, to move any group from a scheduled room to accommodate other groups more efficiently, or if it is determined necessary for cost considerations.
