Table Spaces

Individuals affiliated with the University or sponsored by the University can request to use a table space in the lobby of the Marriott Library for the purpose of distributing information to patrons, students or staff. Groups or individuals outside the University of Utah cannot schedule a table space in the Marriott Library. A table and chairs will be provided and placed in the lobby at either the West or East Entrance of the library.

Marriott Library lobby table spaces can only be scheduled by individuals affiliated with the University or sponsored by the University. Any other entities wanting to use the space are no longer considered. 

There is no usage fee for reserving a table space in the library; however, a billable chartfield must be provided to the Marriott Library Events & Scheduling Coordinator before a reservation can be confirmed. A chartfield is required to verify the request is for a University Department. If the reservation is canceled less than 24 hours before the scheduled time, it will result in a cancellation fee of $50. The Marriott Library reserves the right to deny a reservation if a chartfield cannot be arranged prior to the scheduled time.
