Events & Room Reservations

Policy and Guidelines for Facility Reservations

Kent State University at Geauga and the Twinsburg Academic Center have several on-campus spaces available for use by student organizations, campus administration, and community groups. Please remember that it is your responsibility to set up before and clean up after your event.

How to Make Your Reservation Request:

The process is the same at both locations.

  1. Complete the Room Reservation Form
  2. If you are a community organization, business, or community member, you will need to complete the Facility Use Agreement before your request is considered.
  3. You will receive a confirmation email once your request has been approved.

Can I Have Food at My Event?

You can have food at your event. On the Room Reservation Form and Facility Use Agreement, there is a place to give specific information on food delivery or catering.

Alcoholic beverages are not permitted on university property without the prior written permission of the university.

How Do I Reserve a Room?

You must fill out the Room Reservation Form and the Facility Use Agreement* to submit your reservation request. A reservation should not be considered confirmed until the Events Team approves the room request and you receive confirmation.
*Note - Kent State employee-hosted events do not require a Facility Use Agreement.

Monetary Issues
