Space reservations are granted in priority order to:

Space reservations are granted as first-come, first-serve, and then in priority order to:

  • Beckman research groups hosting events related to their research activities.
  • Units hosting events related to Beckman's research areas.
  • Off-campus organizations hosting events whose activities are directly related to institute research.
  • Central and campus administrative units hosting events important to the overall campus.
  • Off-campus organizations whose events are unrelated to the institute will rarely be granted approval.

The Beckman Institute may allow other organizations, from both on- and off-campus, to reserve space. However, that will only happen when the event doesn't interfere with other planned activities, and when such events appear to serve the best interests of the University of Illinois. Registered Student Organizations will not be granted approval for hosting their events.

  • Special conditions regarding use of space in the Beckman Institute are listed in the Campus Administrative Manual under Reservation of University Property, which covers the limitations on admission fees, contributions, and use of university facilities for private gain.
