Exceptions to our scheduling policy are as follows:
- Classroom requests may be submitted ANYTIME for Monday through Friday reservations between 5:00 PM and 10:00 PM AND all weekend reservations.
Barring the above exception, we must stand by our policy to avoid unnecessary complications in scheduling for the academic calendar.
- Same Day Reservations. To make a same day request for study space, there are two options: (1) drop by the HEC and speak directly to HEC staff; or (2) call HEC staff at (510) 869-6161 to make your same day request by phone.
Next Day Reservations. To make a next day request for study space, there are three options: (1) drop by the HEC and speak directly to HEC staff; (2) call HEC staff at (510) 869-6161 to make your same day request by phone; or (3) email your request at least 24 hours in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Future Reservations. To make a request for study space which is not a “same day” or “next day” request, please email your request to HEC staff at email@example.com.
Please note the following:
- These study spaces are available for reservation:
- Drop-Ins are always welcome. If there is space available at the time you need it, the space is yours.
- Generally, study space can be reserved for a maximum of 4 hours. At the end of a 4-hour reservation, if no one else has reserved the space, your reservation can be extended.

- Print and complete the Reservation Request Form; and

1. Keep in mind that…
- All room inventory is held in reserve until University classes are booked.
- Reservations are filled on a first come, first served basis.
- Reservations should be made at least 72 hours in advance.
- A fee is charged to everyone who uses HEC facilities.
- The Bechtel Room is very costly to use. Consequently, it can only be booked for events for which no other equally suitable room is available.
- Event types permitted in the HEC include: University events, off-site meetings, business retreats, training seminars, presentations, teleconferences, business development seminars, annual meetings.
- Event types which are not permitted in the HEC include: parties, dances, weddings, and any event where money will be collected on-site from attendees.
- Self-catered events are not permitted in any HEC room.
- For catered events, room reservations begin one hour before and end one hour after the actual scheduled event to allow time for set-up and breakdown.
