Curry Conference Spaces


Policies and Procedures for Reservation of Curry Meeting Rooms

Meeting rooms in Ruffner Hall and Bavaro Hall support Curry School of Education academic, research, and development programs. Reservations are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. For Curry Departments and Centers, spring term reservations will be accepted beginning October 1st, summer term reservations will be accepted beginning February 1st, and fall term reservations will be accepted beginning May 1st. Reservations from Curry student organizations and other UVA departments will be accepted the Monday following the first day of the academic term. Meeting space is provided without charge, except when special accommodations are required (i.e.: cleaning, damages).

Meeting rooms may be reserved for UVA functions by:

  • Curry School of Education departments and centers
  • Curry faculty, staff, and students
  • Curry recognized organizations

Requests from non-Curry entities wanting to use meeting rooms for UVA events should be directed to curryevents@virginia.edu. If space permits, these requests will be forwarded to the dean's office administrator for final approval. All reservations must have a Curry staff or faculty point of contact who will be responsible for ensuring compliance with Curry policies and procedures.

Additional details regarding space use and scheduling may be found in the Policies and Procedures for Reservation and Use of Curry Meeting Rooms. Upon submitting a request for meeting room use, event organizers agree to abide by the policies and procedures contained within.

Instructions for Reserving Space

Faculty and staff may reserve space using Microsoft Outlook Calendar by following the steps below (for Windows users) or using the instructions provided by ETO (for Mac and Windows users). Students wishing to request conference rooms should work with personnel in their department, the Curry Student Affairs Office, or the Curry Dean's Office.

Classroom spaces can be reserved for meetings, lectures, and other events through the Source. However, the University does not release classrooms for these purposes until the semester is underway.

Prior to approval, requests must include the following details:

  • Detailed event title
  • Event description & purpose
  • Date, time, and duration of the event
  • Organizer’s name, department, e-mail, and phone
  • Number of attendees expected
  • Set-up and clean-up time required (max. of 1 hour on either side of reservation)
  • Do you require support with audio/visual technology in this room?
  • Do you require room set up assistance?
  • Do you require after-hours building access?
  • Will food be served? If so, please list the caterer

Event organizers will be notified upon making a reservation that the reservation is pending approval. Reservations are official only when the above information has been received and an e-mail confirmation is provided from the Dean’s Office. Dean’s office staff will connect the event organizer with necessary service units if special needs are requested.
