Public Room Usage Policy

Harrison College House offers many common rooms for use and enjoyment by our 850 residents. Like living room and den, these shared rooms provide crucial options for studying, relaxing, socializing, and getting a little space. Please use reasonable civility and care when using these facilities.

Groups or individuals may not dominate use through regular, extended, or exclusive use for meetings, social gatherings, or rehearsals -unless they have sought and received approval. Priority is given to programs created by Harrison Staff, followed by approved use for co-sponsored Harrison events.

For an event to be a Harrison event, it must uphold the ideals of Harrison College House and it must guarantee that all Harrisonians who wish to participate must be able to do so with all of the privileges afforded any other member of the group.

Rooms may not be reserved on an on-going basis without approval of the House Dean. Likewise, floor lounges may not be reserved as meeting spaces other than those sponsored by Harrison staff.

Harrison residents may request to reserve Meeting Room LL12, Music Practice Room LL13 and Study Room 103. Reservation requests must meet the following criteria:

Requests will be processed on a first-come, first-serve basis
Individuals or groups may not request use of a space more than one week in advance of the reservation date
Rooms are available for up to two hours only
Rooms will be available to individuals or groups for one-time use only
