Meetings

MeetingsMeetings · Ring Mall Tabling · Ring Mall Sale

Student Center & Event Services assists UCI students and Registered Campus Organizations with booking meetings in the Student Center and in classrooms and lecture halls.

A meeting is a gathering of your organization’s members to discuss official business. This includes committee and executive board meetings, internal workshops, meetings for members only where an outside speaker is invited to enhance business discussions. Activities that involve non-members, speakers or performers, specialized setups, or multiple days and rooms are considered to be special events, not meetings.

Students will need to bring their UCI student ID’s to event planning appointments.

Please see below for information on booking a meeting in these campus spaces.

Registered Campus Organizations are allowed a maximum of 30 hours per quarter to reserve for routine meetings in the UCI Conference Center.

Final room assignments will be based on expected attendance, preferred setup and availability. Please be as accurate as possible so we may satisfy the maximum number of requests. You may not change the room setups. If your organization rearranges any furniture in a scheduled room, you may incur a labor charge. If you require equipment (e.g., computer projector, screen) in your meeting room, the associated charges will be added to your reservation.

Event Lead Times

Event lead times will vary based on the size and scope of an event; some events may fall under the Major Event policy. If an event inquiry or event information is received with insufficient processing time, then SCES will advise the client and assist the client in identifying viable alternative event dates. For example, an event with additional approvals or that requires resources from other UCI departments/external service providers will require additional processing time. A request that does not allow for the necessary processing time will necessitate the selection of a date further out that accounts for the time to obtain approvals and secure partner resources.

Unfortunately, event requests made with less than the lead time indicated below will generally need to be booked for a later date. Late booking fees may apply in some cases.

Please refer to the guide below for minimum lead times by event description. For questions regarding lead time requirements, please contact the SCES Administrative Office at 949.824.5252.

How to Cancel Space

Student Center & Event Services asks all clients to be considerate and cancel reservations they will not be using to allow other clients the opportunity to reserve the space. Cancellation fees based upon the Confirmation Estimate is as follows:

Notice received from client and associated cancellation fee:

  • 15 or more days prior to event – 50% total fees (i.e., the deposit)
  • 14 days or fewer prior to event – 100% total fees for cancelled space

Events that are not cancelled, and that no one shows up to, will be considered a “no show.” A $25 fee for small rooms (capacity of 0 – 199) and $100 fee for large rooms (capacity of 200 or more) will be charged to clients who fail to cancel a reservation and do not show up for the event, in addition to any other event-related charges.


Registered student organizations are expected to comply with Student Center and University policies.
