Setup Form

Please only submit a setup form if your request for space has been confirmed by the Director of Conference Services.


Please see below for examples of room setup styles.

Auditorium/Theater Style: 

Rows of chairs facing the front of the room, usually divided by cent and/or side aisles. Appropriate for short lecture or larger groups that do not require extensive note-taking.

U-Shape Style: 

Six-or eight foot conference tables placed end to end in the room to form the shape of a U. Chairs are places around the outside of the U. Ideal for Board Room meetings with presentations at the front of the room.

Hollow Square Style: 

Six – or eight-foot conference tables placed in a rectangular outline with open space in the middle. Chairs are placed around the perimeter of the square. Appropriate for groups fewer than 40 where there is a group leader or panel seated at the head of the set up.

Conference Style: 

Six-foot or eight foot conference tables clustered in the center of the room to form one solid surface. Chairs are placed around the perimeter of the tables.

Classroom Style: 

Rows of tables with 2 or 3 chairs at each one, with tables arranged to face the front of the room. Most desirable for long lectures.

Banquet Style: 

Six- or eight-foot round conference tables places throughout the room with 6-8 chairs places around each table. Used for food functions, standard stables of either 60 or 72 inches in diameter to seat 8-12 people per table.
