Booking Event Space

Requests for space should be submitted at least 30 business days in advance but cannot be reserved more than 3 months ahead of the event day to allow for the contracting and planning process. In addition, space is only available to reserve following the completion of scheduling for academic classes:
  • Fall Scheduling – Completed in August of every year
  • Spring Scheduling – Completed in November of every year
  • Summer Scheduling – Completed in April of every year
Smaller scale events (typically held in our small and large conference rooms) can be submitted up to 15 business days in advance and will require full payment upfront.

Kenney-Herter can only be reserved during the non-academic school year, meaning winter, spring and summer breaks. Dates available during those breaks are determined by SAIS.
