Room Reservations and Facilities Use

Kanbar Campus Center 301




The facilities of Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University) exist for the primary purpose of education and use of the University community. Priority for the use of academic facilities is given first to the University classroom needs and second to the programs and activities of University groups. University groups are defined as consisting almost entirely of students, clubs and organizations, faculty, administrators, staff or alumni of the University, whose primary activities are based at or directly related to the University. This also includes offices, departments and/or schools at Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University). The decision to permit or restrict the use of facilities by University groups will be based first on prior academic classroom commitment, then prior reservation. Reservations requested by University groups are taken on a first come first serve basis.

All groups using University facilities must comply with University standards and policies. It is the responsibility of the University Reservationist, Associate Dean of Students and the sponsoring group, to make sure those standards are met. Those groups failing to meet the standards or comply with regulations may be denied future use of the University facilities. Those groups causing damages to University facilities may be charged accordingly.

Alumni of the University are welcome to request facility usage but must work directly through the Alumni Office to do so. The University will reserve facilities to organizations outside of the University community. Approval of the reservations may depend upon the appropriateness and/or fit of the event with the larger mission of the University. Use of the space will be handled as a rental and accompanied by fees and appropriate charges. Groups or organizations outside of the Jefferson community who wish to reserve a facility on campus please contact James Reilly at reillyj@philau.edu.
