The Health Education Center (HEC) provides facilities and services that enhance the learning experience for SMU students and educators. We also provide a functional setting designed to support meetings and conferences for both Alta Bates Summit Medical Center and the community. Our users can expect superb customer service in a safe, friendly university environment.
The primary purpose of the University classroom facilities, located within the Health Education Center (HEC) is to serve the University community. Regularly scheduled University classes take first priority for space, followed by university meetings and events. Alta Bates Summit Medical Center / Sutter Health and its affiliates are next on the priority ladder, followed by all other outside organizations.
HEC Booking Procedure:
All room inventory is held in reserve until University classes are booked. If the requested event date is outside of the current Samuel Merritt University academic term, the event status must remain as a FIRST HOLD or TENTATIVE until courses for the academic term that corresponds with the requested date have been scheduled. Payments will not be accepted during this waiting period. Once the academic term is scheduled, an HEC Scheduling Coordinator will contact the client via telephone and/or email to continue the reservation process, provided that the requested space was not needed by the University.
