    Each year during the annual departmental registration process you will designate three members of your department and/or in each division in your department that schedules space. These designated individuals can reserve space through Scheduling in the Marvin Center, Outdoor Space, City View and State Room at 1957 E Street, the Alumni House at 1918 F Street, Lisner Auditorium, Jack Morton Auditorium, and the Second Floor Art Gallery Lobby in the Media and Public Affairs Building.  To designate members of your team, use the online Space Reservation Authorization Form. Reserving space will be limited to those who are identified as department representatives on this form. 

    These Authorized Schedulers can schedule space via the Events & Venues website. All events booked by your designated authorized representative will be billed directly through the University Accounting Office to the Oracle alias provided and appear on your Budget Performance Review. 

    For additional assistance, contact the Executive Director of Scheduling at 202-994-7470.
