CEU continues to treat space as a valuable and finite resource. Following the first year of operation of the new buildings, the policies governing bookings from internal and external sources have been updated – use these policies and guidelines as a resource when planning for space needs:

-       CEU Space Booking Policy – CEU’s guidelines for managing internal booking requests and practical information for how to book space – accessible here after logging in.

-       CEU Space Usage and Rental Policy – describes the types of possible space booking within CEU, and in particular, how requests from outside partners are handled - accessible here after logging in.

-       Role of the Space Advisory Committee –This Committee is dedicated to reviewing all applications for space usage from external parties, who would like to link up in some way with a CEU academic department or administrative unit (e.g. conferences co-hosted with an association).  It approves the external partner using the space and any requested discounts.  As appropriate, the relevant CEU departments/units will be consulted regarding their interest in and the relevance of the external body.
