SURC Space Requests

Welcome to University Scheduling Services: SURC spaces

We are excited to be able to host your next event in our state of the art Student Union!  With over 14 unique meeting and event spaces, located at the heart of Central Washington University’s campus, we are sure to have just the right space for your event needs.

Recognized CWU student clubs, organizations and departments are eligible for free space in the Student Union as long as the use of space is for official non-course-credited university business.   Groups are still subject to room setup, building manager, services and equipment fees.  For questions regarding rates or to discuss specific space needs for your request, please contact Bonnie Hendrickson at (509) 963-1322 or email

Weekly meetings and seasonal events are able to schedule in advance for the current and following academic quarter.  Large events requiring longer planning periods may be scheduled up to 1 year in advance.

We also accomodate outside guests with events such as weddings, conferences, workshops, trainings, parties, reunions and meeting room space.  For food and beverage options please contact the CWU Catering Department at (509) 963-2095.
