Reserve a Space

To begin, consider which rooms are suitable for the type of event you would like to host by using our Explore Venues feature. To check availability, you can view the calendars by room type below. To reserve a space, click on the Event Space Reservation Portal button to the right.  

PLEASE NOTE: Event space may be reserved up to six months in advance (e.g. a reservation made on April 1 can be made up to and including October 1).

Based on your needs and the needs of the BC Community, Event Management reserves the liberty of relocating your event to a more appropriate venue.

Please Note

We are committed to providing a safe environment to all of our guests during the increased uncertainty that COVID-19 is causing all around us. With that in mind, events booked through December 31, 2020 are considered “tentative” and subject to change in order to adhere to health and safety procedures from government and university officials. We will do our best to keep you informed so that you can manage your upcoming event with as little stress as possible.

As we continue to monitor the evolving situation, we encourage faculty, staff, and students host virtual meetings whenever possible as available space on campus will likely be reduced in the near-term.

Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to hosting you and your guests soon.
