Student Groups

PEMCO How to Succeed

Student clubs, organizations and residence halls may request the use of any Washington Hall venue. These groups have scheduling priority through the priority date selection period. Notification forms are sent to club officers and rectors in the spring semester and groups submit their top three choices of performance or event dates. Once the student’s dates are scheduled, requests from other campus groups are considered on a first-come-first served basis.

In order to successfully and safely manage events in Washington Hall, overall calendar and staffing obligations will be considered when reviewing scheduling requests. The complexity of the productions will be considered and time allotment will be determined by the Washington Hall Program Manager. 

All booking requests should be sent directly to the Washington Hall Facility Manager for schedule coordination. Once a specific date or schedule is determined, the club officer will be directed to submit an SAO360 request for the activity. Please allow 10 days for the SAO360 approval process. No activity can be permitted without an approved SAO360 request. Confirmation will be sent by the Washington Hall Facility Manager.
