Student organizations who want to use the Student Union and
sports facilities for Spring Semester 2nd Quarter. (From June 4, 2018 to July 22, 2018).
Need to confirm their reservation period, and make reservations using the reservation
book at the counter in the Student Office.
**This does not include classroom reservations.

Also, we figured that there is no need for student groups to negotiate for regular use of all the equipment except movable mirrors (One student group is booking for one equipment. Booking requests do not overlap with other groups). Therefore, from Spring break in AY2016, regular equipment use is only available for the movable mirrors. If your group would like to use the movable mirror regularly, please fill out the reservation booking at the Student Office.
