Rubel Room Requests

The Dorothy Rubel Room at the Poetry Center is available to departments who have a public event (one that is advertised and promoted through the COH Marketing team) to the community. The room requires COH marketing staffing of any event that takes place, and availability may be limited on this basis. General parameters:

  • Audience Requirements: 70 - 90 attendees
  • Availability: Based on calendar and staffing availability 

Note: During the school year, Thursday evenings are typically unavailable (for Poetry Center readings) and daytime / morning hours are booked heavily (for Humanities Seminars classes)

Catering Guidelines

The Marketing team can handle catering details on select COH events with Dean’s office approval.  Please refer to these guidelines for your catering needs: 

  • Food/Beverage
    Catering through Student Union is available for all on-campus events. A minimum of 21 business days are required when booking any event with any food and/or beverage items. Event requests submitted with fewer than 21 business days’ notice are subject to approval. Final guest count is due 10 business days prior to the event date. 
  • Alcohol
    Any event with Alcohol needs to have an alcohol waiver submitted at least 30 days prior to the event to allow time for the Deans signature as well as processing time.  
  • Student Union Room Rental
    Room Reservations without a food and beverage component require at least 14 business days’ notice to be booked. To reserve a room within the Student Union Memorial Center, please submit the Room Reservation Request directly to them at: or use the request form.
