Overview of the Reservation Process

Reservation Process (3)

Who Can Reserve Space 

  • Registered Student Organizations in good standing with CSI to make reservations
  • Only Authorized Reservers are allowed to make reservations for the organizations they completed the Authorized Reservers Training for.
    • They are the two officers within your organization who have access to CES.

When to Start Reserving Space

  • Fall Quarter requests are accepted the first day of Fall Quarter. Requests for meetings for Winter quarter may be reserved the last day of classes of Fall Quarter. Requests for meetings for Spring Quarter may be reserved the last day of classes of Winter Quarter
    • Meeting reservations for Winter Quarter can be requested through CES starting the end of Fall Quarter Instruction, December 7th, 2018.
    • Reservation requests for MTGs must be made at least two business days in advance to ensure enough time for the approval process.
  • Requests for Special Events may be made for Fall Quarter of the next academic year.  Special Events planned for Winter and Spring Quarters for the 2018-2019 school year can be made starting the beginning of Fall Quarter, September 24,2018.
    • For SPEs in classroom spaces, you are required to complete reservation requests a minimum of two weeks in advance.
    • For SPEs in billable/paid spaces, you are required to complete reservation requests at least one month in advance.

Note: Reservation requests on hold due to insufficient funds must be acted upon within 2 business days. Special Event reservations will be accepted if the RSO can provide picture proof of the Agency Account activation deposit.  Failure to take any action may result in the request being cancelled.

  • It is also recommended that the group’s financial officer be notified at the beginning of the reservation process and kept informed of expenses as cost estimates are received.

To Avoid Potential Fees/Penalties


If your event includes:

Room alterations

  • You must rearrange the room contents (i.e. furniture, AV equipment, etc.) in their original positions. If the space is not arranged properly and/or missing contents, you may incur charges to restore the room.


  • Please return room contents to their original positions. Please keep in mind there may be other classes in session, and keep noise level at a minimum


Damages of any kind will incur CES coordination fees and Custodial charges to restore the room.
