Room Reservation Policies
Columbia Law School faculty, staff, recognized student groups, and Columbia University affiliates may request space in the Law School.
After the course schedule is finalized each semester, the Office of Student Services will make room reservations for all other events that take place in Jerome Greene Hall, William C. Warren Hall, William and June Warren Hall, and the Jerome Greene Annex.
Faculty and staff have first priority to schedule rooms for review sessions and other academic purposes. Law students acting on behalf of student organizations will have second priority to reserve rooms for meetings of that organization. Law students who would like to reserve rooms on behalf of University organizations will have third priority to reserve rooms.
Law students may not reserve rooms for personal use without permission from the Dean of Students or a director or assistant director in the Office of Student Services. Officers of student organizations may not reserve rooms for non-group activities.
Please note that we reserve the right to adjust the room assignments based on the above priority.
Student organizations are encouraged to make room reservations for standing meetings at the beginning of the semester during the given scheduling period. Specific instructions and procedures regarding scheduling will be provided to all student groups by the director of student activities and/or the scheduling coordinator. Student groups with outstanding bills or who are not in good standing will be in danger of loosing room reservation privileges.
Columbia University affiliates are eligible to request space. However, priority is given to Columbia Law School faculty, staff, and recognized student groups. In addition, events must be law-related in nature and open to Columbia Law School faculty, staff, and students in order to qualify for room assignment.
During the exam period, rooms may only be reserved by the Registrar and the Office of Student Services. Classrooms not being used by the Registrar for exams will be reserved by the Office of Student Services for individual quiet study and group study.
When making a request, be specific about the exact time and room preference. All rooms are reserved exactly as requested, back-to-back, particularly during the busy months of September, October, March, and April. For these reasons, it is extremely important that you do not move your regularly scheduled classes or keep them longer than the scheduled time without first making a room reservation.
Unless you receive an email confirmation of your room reservation, your reservation is not guaranteed.
