Room Reservations

The Driscoll Student Center has a variety of meeting spaces to accommodate groups of 15 to 300 people. Our combination of a large ballroom and smaller meeting/break-out spaces is convenient for conferences and other meeting activities. When teamed up with Sodexo for catering services, the Driscoll Student Center is a great place to host your next event. 

Room reservations procedures vary based on the needs and the groups requesting the room. There are different procedures to follow whether the requesting group is a Student, Faculty, or an External member of the Denver community. 

External

External vendors looking to request a room should make their reservations through Conference and Event Services.
Inquiries about reservations can be made by contacting the office of Conference and Event Services at events@du.edu or by calling 303-871-4333.

Students, Faculty, and Staff looking to reserve a space for private functions must make a reservation through Conference and Event Services. 

Internal

Internal members, such as Students Orgs, Faculty and Staff, and Campus Departments should make their reservations through the University's 25Live system.  

Conference and Event Services offers a comprehensive Event Planning Guide to assist you.
