To request space, contact the library's Facilities Management office at 410-516-8338. Requests should be made at least five business days in advance of the date of the event.
Here are the rules:
All events must be sponsored by an official JHU student group or department.You are responsible for providing any furniture needed for the event and for removing it within 24 hours after the event. To rent additional furniture from JHU Facilities, you can use the form at the bottom ofthis page .
Permission is given on a first come, first served basis. Only one event may run at a time per location.
- Events may not obstruct entrance to and egress from the library, nor to any interior areas patrons and staff need to access.
- No signage related to any event may be posted on or in the library, except on the tables you provide and on designated bulletin boards.
- You are responsible for leaving the premises after the event in the same condition as it was before the event.
You are responsible for the behavior of people working on the event. Excessive noise and behavior disruptive to patrons will not be tolerated and could result in shutting down the event.
Although the Hut cannot be scheduled during the academic semesters, it is available during academic breaks (such as intersession and summer) for academic or campus events.
- Please contact Associate Director Elizabeth Mengel at firstname.lastname@example.org, who will send you the use agreement (and the catering agreement, if you are serving food). Please note that these agreements require a signature from a staff member.
