Student Organizations looking to hold an on-campus meeting or event should request space using Book-It, TCNJ’s centralized scheduling system for on-campus events. Video tutorials are available to help your organization submit an event request. Student Organizations must be mindful of the timing required for submitting a request for an event space and service providers. Requests will fall under a designated Event Tier depending on the complexity of their event and space.
All requests are subject to room availability. Submitting a request that meets the Event Tier requirement does not guarantee the space you requested is available.
Book-It Help Make a Reservation
General classroom request
Small or low profile events requiring limited to no resources from outside the event venue
Events that require campus resources in addition to those available from the event venue
Major or high profile events that require extensive planning and execution
Final determination of the appropriate tier will be made by Brower Student Center professional staff. Events that change tier after the initial booking may need to be rescheduled to meet necessary deadlines.

Student Event Planning Guidelines
Organizations that need to make any changes to an event, must communicate this information to the Brower Student Center Student Event Coordinator no later 7 days prior to the booking date. Changes not communicated within this time frame are not guaranteed.
Organizations that need to cancel an event, must communicate this information at least two days prior to the booking date. This includes the rain call for original dates or spaces. Organizations that fail to communicate an event cancellation within this period may still be held responsible for any applicable fees associated with the event.
Registered student organizations or college departments may not serve as “fronts” for non-college groups or college departments in order for these departments/groups to gain free or discounted use of meeting space or catering services. To avoid questions of fronting, reservations made by registered student organizations must meet the following guidelines:
- The event/meeting must be conceptualized, planned, and managed by student members of the registered student organization and must be associated with a documented organization initiative.
- Any costs associated with the event/meeting must be paid by the recognized student organization.
- Student Center staff will make the final determination as to whether an event is a student event by considering the nature of the event and potential attendees and the purpose/goals of the recognized student organization.
Student organizations are responsible and liable for the use, care, and condition of any venue, and/or equipment reserved for their events. Organizations are required to leave all venues and/or equipment that they have used for their events in satisfactory condition. This includes but is not limited to removing all trash and decorations related to the event, and returning any moved furniture to its original setting.
