Room Reservations

The Berkeley Language Center offers a number of classrooms and a computer facility on Levels B and C of Dwinelle Hall’s classroom wing. Each room’s capacity and technological capabilities are available below: 

BLC rooms may be requested for any class or authorized campus activity, including single classes or events and semester-long classes and excluding student events between the hours of 8 AM to 6 PM Monday through Friday (excluding holidays). We will consider events outside of these parameters on a case by case basis, pending availability of staff. Priority for rooms goes to language or language-related classes and activities.

All room requests are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Usage that is part of language-related courses in A&H is free. Otherwise, a recharge rate of $60/hr or $240/day is applied. Under certain circumstances, a cleaning fee may also apply. 

For semester-long class requests, priority is given to distance learning courses and other courses that require BLC room technology. An instructor must be present at all times. 

Semester-long classroom reservation requests are processed on the following timeline: 

  • FALL: general reservations open January 1; processing of reservations will begin Feb 1, with tentative responses by Feb 15.
  • SPRING: general reservations open May 1; processing will begin June 1, with first round of tentative responses by June 15. 

We will do everything possible to accommodate all requests but please note that it may not be possible. Final decisions for room requests remain at the discretion of BLC staff.
