The Boardroom (Room 430) is part of the Dean's Suite and is primarily reserved for use by the dean. Reservations can be made by contacting the dean's executive assistant, Sharon Moore, at x5407.
When the dean is not in town, the Boardroom may be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.
When the dean is in town, Boardroom reservations are kept to a minimum. This accommodates the dean in meeting with unanticipated groups of visitors, students, faculty, or staff.
The Boardroom comfortably seats 14 for meals. There are an additional six chairs for regular seating. A group of 20 is maximum, if comfort is a factor. Additional chairs may be brought in; the person reserving the room is responsible for making arrangements for the additional chairs and returning them.
Use of the Boardroom does not include beverage or maid service. All beverages and food are to be provided by the person reserving the room. This person is also responsible for all set up, break down, and clean up. The coffee machine in the adjacent kitchen may be used; however, the person reserving the room must obtain the coffee from the staff lounge across the hall. The Boardroom and the kitchen should be returned to their original condition, ready for use by the next group. Extensive cleaning and straightening may be required; this may include cleaning the table, vacuuming, picking up trash, washing any dishes used, emptying coffee grounds, etc.
The person reserving the room is responsible for media equipment arrangements. Any media equipment needs must be arranged with Media Services.
The person reserving the room is responsible for obtaining the key prior to the Boardroom's use and returning it to the dean's office immediately following cleanup.
Use of the Boardroom on weekends and in the evening is highly restrictive, due to its location on the administrative floor and its proximity to security-sensitive materials.
Only under special circumstances will external groups be allowed to use the Boardroom. In such circumstances, a Freeman staff member will need to assume responsibility for locking up after regular hours.
