Who can use the space in the center?

All UWB students are welcomed at the center and may use the space in the center. Students are encouraged to spend time in the non-reserved space whenever the center is open. There are also multiple rooms available for reservation.

How do I make a reservation for a room in the center?

Individual students, student clubs, and student organizations may make a reservation using the online reservation form.

Is there a limit on the number of hours I can reserve a meeting room?

A meeting room may be reserved for a maximum of two hours.

Is there a limit to the number of reservations I can make for a given week?

A Club, Organization, or individual student may make one or two reservations per week. The combined reservation time must not exceed two hours per week. Example: Club X may make a one hour reservation for an officers meeting and a one hour reservation for the club meeting in one week. Club Y may choose to make one reservation for a two hour block.

What does it mean to be an affiliated club or organization of the center?

An Affiliated Club or Organization means that the Club/Organization and the Center mutually agree they have similar missions, purpose, and/or goals. The advantage of seeking Affiliation Status allows the Club/Organization officers to make a reservation on the on-line form and skip the short answers section explaining the purpose and goals for the reservation.

How does our club or organization become an Affiliated Club/Organization?

An officer of the club or organization will send an email to the Center Director, or appointed designee, describing how your Club or Organization goals are consistent with the Center’s goals and purpose or by attaching your Clubs Constitution to the email. The Center Director or appointed designee will respond to your request within 10 business days of your email request. Please refer to the current Diversity Center email, uwbdiv@uw.edu.

If I don’t have a reservation, can I still use a room?

Outside of each room that can be reserved is a daily schedule. If you see there is no reservation for the current hour, you are welcome to use that room. You may use the “unreserved” room for a maximum of two hours.

Can faculty and staff use the space in the center?

Faculty and staff may use the space if they collaborate with and receive sponsorship from a student club or organization. If the faculty or staff member determines none of the current UWB clubs or organizations are aligned with your reason for seeking space, you may request sponsorship from the center student advisory board. View more information on student clubs. You may seek sponsorship from the center student advisory board by emailing the Director, or appointed designee.
