Conference and IVN Rooms



Conference rooms are available for use and/or rental by USM groups for meetings, seminars and business-related programs. Government and non-profit groups may be granted use, if programs relate to the CBL community. All reservations for any groups must be pre-approved by the Associate Director of Administration and Facilities. Reservations are based upon room availability, availability of CBL staff and the needs of the group. Rooms can be set in a variety of set-up and can accommodate various sizes of groups. Most rooms have AV capabilities and some room include interactive video capability.

Requesting a Conference Room

To reserve a room complete the Event and Room Request Form. Provide basic information (date/time/number of people/set-up needs) to confirm a location. If a particular room is required or desired, please include this information in the additional information section of the form. In the event of an immediate need, call Patricia Stebbing at x253 or Stacy Hutchinson at x364.
