On-Campus Organizations

Registered student organizations and departments may reserve one of the designated tables at the Memorial Union (MU) and Silo Union through the Information Desk, located on the first floor of the Memorial Union.

Table reservations may not be made more than 4 weeks in advance.

Every student organization conducting a fundraising event at an MU or Silo table must first have an Application to Raise Funds approved by the Center for Student Involvement (CSI) and receive a Permit to Sell, which must be presented to the Information Desk and then clearly displayed at the table. Tables are monitored by the Information Desk staff. Departments receive fundraising approval and a Permit to Sell from Conference & Event Services (CES).

Registered student organizations may also request to table in the Dining Commons during lunch or dinner hours, up to three times per quarter. More information is available at Reaching the Residents through Student Housing and Dining Services.

Use by Off-Campus Groups & Individuals

Reservations of MU/Silo tables may not be made more than 2 weeks in advance through the Information Desk on the first floor of the MU.

Off-campus non-profit groups must provide a Tax ID/EIN to sell non-commercial literature priced to cover “reasonable cost of production”. Fundraising approval must be obtained from Conference & Event Services (CES) and a Permit to Sell must be displayed on the table.
