Update from Space and Event Task Force (April 2022)

The Space and Event Task Force, created in late 2021 by President Rivera, was given directives to inventory campus spaces, review reservation processes, and provide a plan for improving the state of space use and reservations on campus. To that end, the Task Force has published a findings and recommendations document.

The findings are just the first step of many improvements that will be made in the coming months and years to help the campus community more easily and efficiently find and use space for event and college needs.

Please see Macalester’s COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions for the most up-to-date guidelines on COVID-19 safety for campus events.

In order to improve efficiency and ensure all information is gathered for events, we now require requests for events in spaces that reservations books to be submitted using one the following two methods:

There are certain departments on campus who reserve their own spaces. Please see the Web App or Request Form for instructions for who to contact to reserve those spaces.
Please refer to our event regulations webpage for information on the required advance preparation and notice for all events.

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

Event Operations aims to engage the Macalester College community in on-campus programming and 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.
