If I submit a request, is the room automatically reserved? When will I hear back?

The room is not automatically reserved; you will receive official confirmation via email when the space is reserved. We try to respond within 24-48 hours during business hours except for requests submitted before or during shopping period. Requests made prior to shopping period usually cannot be approved until shopping period has ended, after all courses and discussion sections are booked. Requests for dates during shopping period itself are generally only approved a day before your event, or, in rare cases, the day of your event.
