Making a reservation

Serving students is the Joe Crowley Student Union’s first priority. Although reservations are made on a first come, first served basis, student event planners are granted first consideration. The Joe Crowley Student Union reserves the right to make all final decisions regarding space assignment.

  • A. How to make a reservation request

    All request for use of event/meeting space within the Joe Crowley Student Union are processed through the JCSU Event Management office.   Individuals or Groups may submit a request through:

    1.  JCSU Reservation System – (University Groups Only). The Student Union’s reservations system is the primary method for making reservations for event/meeting space within the Union.  The system allows event planners to submit a request and place a hold on the space, submit logistical support needs, and allows for real-time monitoring of the reservation status.
    2. In Person: Request for event/meeting space, may be made, in person at the Joe Crowley Student Union’s Administration office (JCSU Suite 404) during normal business hours. 
    3. Email: Request for event/meeting space, may be made by emailing csures@unr.edu. The email must include the event name, event date, event start and end times, estimated attendance, requested venue, requested setup, brief description of event/meeting, event planner’s name, event planner’s phone number, and event planners email address.  Email requests are processed secondary to requests submitted via the JCSU Reservation System.

    Once a request is received, a Joe Crowley Student Union Event Management office team member will review the request to ensure proper use of the facility, ensure logistical support is received in full, and schedule necessary support service.  For most spaces, the event planner will receive an email communication within two (2) business days to confirm the use of space, outline logistical support needs and fees, or request additional information. 

  • B. ASUN-recognized organizations

    Before submitting a request for space, undergraduate student groups must submit an ASUN SEAB Form linked on the ASUN Center for Student Engagement website.

  • C. Processing time

    The Joe Crowley Student Union requires a minimum processing time, based on the venue.  Requests submitted, with less than the minimum requested time, are not guaranteed and are subject to additional fees. Please see Reservation Request Deadlines (Section G) for room-specific cutoff dates.

  • D. Recurring reservations

    See “Recurring Reservation” definition in Section I.

  • E. Meeting reservations

    See “Meeting” definition in Section I.

    1. University Groups: Reservations are made on a first come, first served basis.  The Student Union reserves the right to make adjustments to assigned spaces based on demand and support needs.  Event planner will be notified of changes made to a request. 
    2. Outside Groups: An Outside Group is required to be sponsored by a University Group to reserve, schedule or use a Facility, Outside Area, Special Use Facility or Special Use Outdoor Area.
