Space Scheduling

Contact: Iwona Contreras (909-537-3447 or icontrer@csusb.edu) or Library Administration, 909-537-5102.

The library's conference rooms and event areas may be scheduled by CSUSB staff or faculty for CSUSB-related events. Non-CSUSB groups may be allowed to use the facilities for a nominal charge. CSUSB groups may schedule library conference rooms and event areas at no charge. However, if special set-up or labor by library staff is required, there will be a charge-back starting at $50.

Request Library Space Reservation.

Chartered CSUSB student organizations may be eligible to reserve library spaces; please contact Iwona Contreras directly for additional information.

Before requesting a reservation, please consider whether your event is appropriate for an academic library setting, where many people will be quietly studying and reading. If you are unsure if your group or activity qualifies to use library facilities, please contact Iwona Contreras. For alternative campus space scheduling options, contact University Event Scheduling (909-537-5236).

We suggest that you call to determine availability before submitting a request, however, reservations are not final until confirmed via email. Scheduling requests are not final until confirmed via phone or email.
