  • Reserving a Table

    All requests to reserve tabling space must be made at least two business days in advance and submitted via the Event Management System (EMS). A tabling request does not guarantee a tabling space. You must receive a confirmation from the Center for Student Involvement.

    Table 1 is closest to the Hanging Lounge, Table 8 is closest to the Bonner Center for Civic Engagement. The benches along the second floor are labeled on the left leg with their tabling number. 


  • Set-up and Take-Down


    Organizations or departments tabling are required to set up and dismantle their table, including any accompanying displays, at the start and end of their scheduled reservations.

    Organizations or departments should check in at the THC Information Desk when they arrive to table; staff can assist organizations or departments in finding their reserved tabling space or tables.

    Tables are located in the closets along the second floor of THC. When making a reservation you are permitted one table and one bench. 


    Organizations and departments are responsible for cleaning up their materials, and putting their table back into the closet. Failure to disassemble your table may result in the suspension of tabling privileges for your group.

    The Center for Student Involvement does not provide storage or hold items for tabling. Materials found in the table storage closet will be disposed of at the end of each day.

  • Being Present While Tabling
