Plan Your Event

Essential steps

  1. Request approval from Adrienne Packard, the Associate Director of Student Affairs, at apackard@uchicago.edu if your event involves VIP guest speakers (such as an alum of the Law School, an elected or appointed government official, a judge, or other VIP), children, alcohol, or is open to the public.
  2. Reserve a room and optionally catering, A/V equipment, and parking passes. (Log in with your UCLAW ID.)
    • The room reservation system doesn’t work with Internet Explorer.
    • Catering must be ordered 48 hours in advance. If you do not have a confirmation 24 hours before your event, contact Events Manager Lucienne Goodman at lgoodman@uchicago.edu.
    • Recording requires a signed permission form (PDF).
    • An audio recorder is free; staffed audio or video services may entail a fee.
  3. Add a calendar entry. (Log in with your CNetID.)
