If you use the Presentation Room you are responsible for leaving the room clean and in the original configuration. There is no charge or fee for the use of this room. However, we do require you clean up immediately after you are finished in the room. Failure to leave a clean room or any defacement caused to the room and its furnishings are sufficient grounds for denial of future use of the room.
Ensuring a pleasant and productive environment for study and research for all library users requires that respect must be given to maintain the quiet within the Oviatt Library. The Presentation Room doors may need to be kept closed during an event to avoid disturbing others.
