Lounge Space Reservations

Lounge space in residential buildings can be reserved by emailing the Assistant Director of the area with the day, time, and event details.  The Assistant Director will confirm your reservation if space is available.  For Umoja House Dining Room or Garden Level Lounge reservations only, please fill out the form below.  A confirmation will be sent within 48 hours.

Umoja House Dining Room and Garden Level Lounge Reservation Request

For the Umoja House, this form confirms the reservation of space and access to the building only.  If you have additional catering or facilities requests, you must contact those offices directly. Furniture may not be removed from the Garden Level Lounge or Dining Room for specific events.  Due to Umoja's primary purpose as a student-occupied residence hall, there are limited times and days that the Dining Room and Garden Level Lounge are available for reservation.  Specifically, all weekday reservations close at 8 pm.  Saturday the Garden Level is available for reservation from 12 pm- 6 pm.  Sunday the Garden Level lounge is not available for reservation.   The Umoja dining room is not available on weekends.  Maximum capacity for the Dining Area is 40 and Garden Level lounge is 20 persons.

* Requests for the Umoja House Classroom (102) must be reserved using the R-25 reservation system.  The maximum capacity for the classroom is 45 persons.


Roommate Agreement Forms

To assist you to better know your roommate(s) the Office of Residence Life provides you with agreement forms to be filled out at the beginning of the year. During the first two weeks of the fall semester your Gryphon  will work with you and your roommate(s) and/or housemates to complete your agreement form. Click the links below to obtain a copy of each type of Agreement.

Hall Communities will also develop a set of community standards based on the Principles of an Equitable Community.

Right from the beginning, it is very important to communicate openly with your roommate about topics ranging from study methods to taste in music. Learning to live with another person, to acknowledge and respect your differences, and to allow one another the space to grow is a valuable component of the residential experience.

It will be a challenge to talk about your differences, but taking time to discuss your personal needs up front and reach a written agreement is a good way to head off problems before their arise. Keep your Gryphon appraised of how things are going. If troubles arise, do not hesitate to speak with your Gryphon or your area's Assistant Director. We encourage students in conflict to seek mediation through the Office of Residence Life.
