Overview | Atrium

Room Information and Setup Options

  • The Forum’s ground floor, known as the Atrium, is open to the public seven days a week, with the exception of University-designated holidays.
  • The Community Table on the Atrium’s west side, which seats up to 12 people, may be reserved for an occasional group lunch or meeting (of no more than two hours).  
  • Because of our commitment to keeping the ground floor available to our community and for community programming, use of the Atrium for private events is restricted and infrequent. 
  • Normally, there is a four-hour maximum on usage of the space for private events, with a preference to keep Atrium east (occupancy 267) open to the public, while Atrium west (occupancy 346) is used for the private event. The charge is $1850 per hour for each side (Atrium east or Atrium west). The Forum has a portable sound system, podium, and monitor that may be requested for events in the Atrium (included in the rental fee).
  • Inquiries about use of the Community Table or renting the Atrium for a private event should be sent to [email protected].
