Submitting a Room Request

Room requests for events are accepted after the course schedule is finalized for a particular semester. In general, this means:

  • Fall semester events are scheduled beginning in August
  • Spring semester events are scheduled beginning in mid-October
  • Summer semester events are scheduled beginning in February

The process for requesting space in General Purpose Classrooms varies based on who is managing the event; please see below for details.

Rutgers Unit/Department/School

Faculty and staff from a Rutgers unit, department, or school may submit room reservation requests through the OASIS Room Request Form.

All events, planned activities, conferences, and non-credit academic programs for 25 or more people hosted on university property will also require certification through the Event and Activity Certification System (EACS) that should be completed before submitting the OASIS Room Request Form above. Meetings associated with business and/or administration of the university do not need to be submitted for certification. For more information, please visit ipo.rutgers.edu/events.

Rutgers Student Organizations

Rutgers University Recognized Student Organizations may request classroom space on weekday evenings after classes conclude and on the weekends. The process is managed through the Student Centers Meetings and Events Office, which collects requests and forwards them to OASIS for processing.

All Others (Rutgers Alumni, Governmental Agency, External Group/Community Partner)

Groups and individuals who are unaffiliated with Rutgers University require a Rutgers sponsor department to request space in General Purpose Classrooms. For questions, please contact OASIS at sched@echo.rutgers.edu.
