Book a Common Space

Ontario Hall common lounge

Students and student leaders living in residence are able to book common spaces within their building for activities such as group meetings, prayer space, ceremony, studying, programming events, etc. You may book a room up to two weeks in advance, and we recommend booking early to ensure that no events are planned in the same space at the same time.

Use of Common Space

It is important that common rooms are used properly so that they may continue to be used by the residence community. Please leave the rooms in the same condition that they were found in. Be sure to dispose of your garbage, and return the furniture to its original placement, etc. If extra cleaning, repairs, or other costs are required to restore the room after its use, you may receive a bill from the Housing Office.

Common space can only be used for activities which adhere to the Residence Contract and do not break any laws.

Book a Space

Common rooms (e.g. main lounge, floor lounge, meeting room, academic cafe, etc.) are available to book Monday to Sunday, from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. If you require the room outside of these hours, please connect directly with your Front Desk.

Note you can book a room once per day for a maximum of two hours.

To book a room, select your residence from the menu below and then choose which room you’d like to book. From there, you will be able to see all available dates and times for that space. Once you have made your selection and provided your info, you can complete and submit the booking. At this time, a confirmation email will be sent to your Western email account.

Common spaces in residences are managed and administrated by the Housing Office. All questions about Room Bookings can be forwarded to your Front Desk.
