Reservation Process

Reservation process

While scheduling priority for space usage is given to the Mike Ilitch School of Business' own programming, we welcome rental requests for available event spaces from non-affiliated individuals and organizations as well as alumnae planning conferences, meetings, special events, etc. 

As our calendar is tightly booked for classes and school events, we may not be able to confirm an event space more than a semester in advance.

Who Can Reserve Space:

  • External Clients may submit an online request for event spaces here: Meeting and Event Request. Mike Ilitch School of Business reserves the right to determine if the event is appropriate to the mission of the university.
  • Authorized Ilitch School student groups should use the Student Organization Event Request Form, as some of the policies and procedures are different.
  • Ilitch School staff and faculty meetings and events, please submit your room reservation requests by email to Pam William

Once the necessary information is received, one of our Event Services professionals will use what you have submitted to determine availability and suitability of resources. Please allow up to 7-10 business days for processing. All requests are reviewed on a first come, first serve basis. Reservation confirmations and estimated invoices are sent via email.


Building hours for events: Mon-Fri, 8:30 a.m. - 10 p.m. (includes setup and teardown time)

University Closings can be unexpected. During the period that the University is closed, all on-campus events scheduled during that time are cancelled. If an event is cancelled due to weather, the event sponsor will be contacted to reschedule and notify attendees. Event planners are urged to make cautious decisions regarding events planned during winter months.
