Please note: Most meeting and event spaces on Macalester’s campus have been transformed into classroom spaces or perch points to create additional space for students during the time of COVID-19. Most of these spaces are not reservable by our campus community.

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. Please note that we are not accepting outside rentals at this time due to COVID-19.
