Reservation Requests

In order to reserve space in the Multicultural Center, please note the following:

  • The business hours for the Multicultural Center are Monday-Thursday 8:00am - 7:00pm and Friday 8:00am - 4:30pm.
  • All non-Multicultural Center groups will need to restrict ongoing, regular meetings to the above MCC business hours and cannot be held when MCC is closed. 
  • If space is being requested for use after business hours, a responsible graduate assistant, organization advisor or professional staff member must check out the MCC key at the Office Public Safety in Mowbry Hall and must be in attendance at all times. Must state person’s name on request form.
  • Requests must be submitted at least 5 business days before the date of the event.
  • The person submitting the request will receive a response within 3 business days of the date of submission.
  • If there are questions or concerns about the request or the decision, please email:  mccscheduling@wiu.edu .

Use of Space & Equipment

  • The Multicultural Center does not have staff available to set-up or take-down furniture.
  • Tables & chairs in the Multipurpose Room may be moved. However, it must be moved back to the original layout at the end of the event.
  • If food is served, the spaces used must be cleaned properly and trash disposed of appropriately. This means taking large amounts of trash to the dumpsters in the parking lot between the MCC and Seal Hall.
  • A projector screen is available in the Dance Studio and De Renzy Boardroom.
  • Media cart is available, it includes projector, microphone, speaker and DVD player. You must provide computer. Set up is your responsibility, no tech service is available.
  • There are 3 functioning Centers in the MCC and people come and go throughout the building throughout the business day. Due to the acoustics in the building, noise travels, so if you require a quiet space for your event, then reserving the Dance Studio and/or the Multipurpose Room may not be a good option for your event.
