DMU’s facilities are maintained to fulfill our academic and health care mission primarily funded by students’ tuition and fees.  When space is available, we are pleased to offer it to groups to conduct meetings, events or educational sessions that support our mission of education, health care, research and community service.

You may complete the room reservation request below, although completion does not guarantee a reservation. Your request will be reviewed by the Scheduling Coordinator based upon the provisions in the University’s room use policy. The Scheduling Coordinator shall respond to your request within five (5) business days.

Administrative fees, security fees, and room use fees are charged to cover direct costs only.  The Scheduling Coordinator’s response will include a list of applicable fees and the fees will be detailed in the executed contract.

For more information, read our Room Use Policy.
