Please note:  There are currently no spaces available for organizations or departments to reserve for meetings or gatherings, due to COVID-19.  Questions or concerns regarding this can be directed to Andy Williams (

We are not accepting outside rentals at this time due to COVID-19. 

Our staff are reserving a small number of spaces such as Private Consultation Rooms and limited publicity items. Available options and policies can be viewed on COVID-19 and Reservations. 

The role of Reservations is to provide exemplary logistical support in on-campus event planning for academic and administrative departments and chartered student organizations.

In effort to engage the Macalester College community in on-campus programming, Reservations serves as a great resource for a wide variety of event types and is the primary spot for on-campus groups to reserve space on campus and make logistical requests for upcoming events.

Off campus groups: for inquiry about conference and facility rental information including summer housing, please visit Conferences and Facility Rentals.
