Caine Student Center Table Reservation
Registered student organizations may reserve tables in the Caine Student Center to promote events, conduct sign-ups, fundraising and more. Tables in Caine Student Center may be reserved by submitting the Table Reservation Request Form to the Center for Student Involvement (CSI) a MINIMUM OF THREE DAYS PRIOR to the proposed tabling date. Table Reservation Requests forms will be reviewed in the order in which they are received and will be approved on a first come, first served basis. Individuals or registered Student Organizations may table only if they are notified by the CSI in writing that their request has been approved. Requestors should allow three business days for review and confirmation of their Table Reservation Requests. There are a limited amount of tables available, so plan accordingly. Be sure to give yourself enough time for set up and take down. Any items left at your table or stored in the CSI will be disposed of once your reservation has ended.
