UCI Departments

Updated Event and Building Information

We will re-open for events beginning Tuesday, Sept. 7, 2021.

As a result of a staffing shortage, we had to make some temporary event-related service adjustments in what we can accommodate. These adjustments will affect room setups, equipment availability, and operating hours that will apply until SCES is able to hire and train a new team.

Booking Release Window

The following criteria will be applied to events scheduled in the Student Center Conference Center and outdoor venues booked by Student Center & Event Services in order to place emphasis on events intended for UCI students while providing programming opportunities to University of California departments and external individuals or organizations.

These priorities are based on recommendations from the Student Center Board of Advisors in combination with related campus policies and procedures.

All requests for use of the Student Center Conference Center and outdoor event space will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis within the priority guidelines.
