How do I reserve space for my event?

Faculty, staff and student organizations may request to reserve interior or exterior space for activities related to, or in support of, the University’s missions and goals. Only classrooms, computer labs, conference rooms, and multipurpose rooms within the academic buildings and Kehr Union are available, along with campus outdoor spaces.

A space reservation is made by submitting an electronic scheduling request. All student space requests require approval from the student group’s advisor before processing any student space reservation.

First, check on the preferred room’s availability using the online EMS scheduling system. Use your current BU user name and password to log onto the system. Do not include the “” or “” with your user name.

Second, after confirming that the room is available, or identifying an alternative available room, submit your request through this same site.

Last minute, unique requests may be submitted via email to Facilities Scheduling at or by calling 570-389-4277.

Please note:

a. Academic needs have precedence over all classroom space requests during class and exam periods.
b. Making reservations a minimum of two weeks in advance is recommended.
c. Space reservations may be limited by the number of reservations per group based on the use demands of the space.
