Events with catering through Bon Appetit must be made at least two weeks in advance. Requests for large events involving extensive services in Memorial Chapel or Beckham Hall must be made at least three weeks in advance.

Once your space request is submitted, a staff member will review your request.  If there are no needs your event will be confirmed and you will recieve an email indicating you are all set.  If you have not received a confirmation within three business days, plase check with the Reservations office to see if there was a problem.

If your request has needs, a staff person will contact you within 3 business days to confirm all details.
