Make a Reservation
Reservations may be made for any time the Frieson Black Cultural Center is open during the current academic year. New reservations for the following academic year will typically be processed after June 15.
The exception to this is: University departments and organizations (including student organizations) may not reserve space for standard weekly meetings until after November 15 for the spring semester and after April 15 for the summer and fall semesters. This is to allow time for the scheduling of special events.
Reservations are made through Campus Event Services. Please use the following links:
