Room Rentals

We strive to offer high-quality support for research, instructional, and outreach activities. To meet this goal, we ask that you submit a RESERVATION FORM 30 days before the intended use date. Submission of a request does not grant automatic approval. An ORWRP staff member will follow up regarding the status of your request via email. Requests are approved on a first-come, first-served basis.

Prior to the scheduled event, payment must be received in full and the Room Reservation Policy must be signed and returned to ORWRP staff.
