Campus Events/Meeting Fall 2020 - Spring 2021

The University published the Return to Campus Guide on July 1, which included guidelines that apply to campus events. Events/Meetings should be held virtually when possible. 

With priority given to the health and safety of event attendees, several guidelines established by ODH and CDC, including those listed below have been adopted by the university and will apply to campus events:

  • 10 person gathering limit
  • Facial coverings
  • Social distance requirements
  • Hand sanitizer

In addition, the following guidelines are in place

The lodge décor of this multipurpose room provides an intimate setting suitable for events up to 96 people. CES coordinates with you in advance your AV, set up and catering needs. Parking in the adjacent garage should be arranged in advance with Parking Services.

Banquet Room

The Banquet room is located on the second floor of the Stratford Heights community building, and includes access to the patio space. Access after 5 p.m. into the building is limited to swipe access, so pre-arrangements must be made for evening event

Access to the banquet room is 30 minutes prior to the event start time. If additional time if needed for set-up, please notify CES.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines, Stratford Heights banquet room will have only one standard set:
