Guidelines

Toy Lounge is maintained and controlled by the College of Arts & Sciences for informal to semi-formal meetings of faculty, administration and related groups.

This space is available for faculty and staff use only. Students or student organizations are not permitted to reserve this space. This space is to be used 'as is'. If you need additional technology or furniture (more tables, chairs) than what is currently in Toy Lounge, please consider alternative venues.
