Requests from BSB departments/centers/institutes (BSB units) for academic functions will be scheduled before other requests. If a scheduling conflict occurs, requests from BSB units take precedence. BSB science affiliated student groups will have priority over other Baylor departments/offices.

The atrium is a commons area for students, faculty, and staff and may not be reserved for meetings. However, if space is needed for registration tables, bake sales, etc., a request form must be submitted to avoid conflicts between groups.

Only normal meeting formats that do not include other programs or activities as part of the meeting will be allowed.

Each semester a new reservation must be made but student group requests will NOT be considered until the completion of academic scheduling of classes, review sessions, SI sessions, exams, etc.

BSB forms required to complete your reservation:

    • Submit a room request via Astra for scheduling along with your student activities approval to bsb@baylor.edu no later than 7 days prior to the event.

If the event includes solicitation, that approval must also be included with the request.

  3. Usage Agreement form (once each semester)

    • Return the signed BSB Usage Agreement Form which the group leader/advisor must sign stating the building guidelines have been read and will be followed. The form must be returned 3 days before the first meeting or the event will not be scheduled.
