Memorial Union Meeting Room Policies
- Academic departments may book space two years in advance; off-campus clients (limited to times of academic breaks or within 60 days), one year in advance; and student organizations, upon registering with the Student Organization Support Office, for the following academic year. Reservations for regularly scheduled for-credit courses will not be accepted.
- Off-campus groups that are affiliated with an on-campus department or student organization may utilize the MU when school is in session by obtaining co-sponsorship. By co-sponsoring the event, the department or organization assumes responsibility for any financial obligations from the event. A letter is required from the department head or organization president and advisor stating how the event furthers the mission of the organization and/or Arizona State University. At least one member of the department or organization must be in attendance at the event.
- Third-party clients not co-sponsored by an ASU entity will be required to supply a certificate of insurance and endorsement with the coverage amounts specified by the ASU insurance department. Third-party clients conducting a luncheon or dinner catered by the MU’s contracted in-house caterer may be excluded from this requirement.
