Reserve a Space

The Carlson School of Management has several types of rooms and spaces available for teaching, studying, and events; these spaces are primarily scheduled by two different entities: Carlson School Building and Event Services or the University's Office of Classroom Management.

Reserve a Room

Carlson School Building and Event Service schedules these departmental spaces

  • First Floor Atrium, 3M Auditorium (CSOM 1-115)
  • Videoconference Classroom (CSOM 1-114)
  • Executive Center suite of classrooms.

Many have priority scheduling periods and become available to others after that time. The Executive Center is exclusively for executive or graduate-level activities with priority given to Carlson School CEMBA and Executive Education programs. All have a rental fee. Carlson-controlled, departmental spaces are not scheduled on weekends unless the event is sponsored by a Carlson School department, or affiliated student organization with staff supervision. Executive Center classrooms are not available for reservation for student organization activities.

The Office of Classroom Management (OCM) manages the reservations for general purpose classrooms in both Carlson School and Hanson Hall buildings.

Scheduling Priorities

Credit classes for degree programs have scheduling priority, but general purpose classrooms become available for events and meetings after the credit class schedule for the upcoming semester is complete.

Weekend Custodial Fees

If you reserve a general classroom on the weekend, an additional custodial fee may be charged by Facilities Management. Please contact FM at 612-624-2900 for details.
