Requesting a Room

Getting your event approved for Stanford VSO groups

All university events need prior approval from University staff (SAL, OAPE or FSL). We want to know what you are doing and help as much as we can. See instructions on how to register your event and receive approval:

Submitting Room Agreement Sign off and Payment

After receiving approval from Stanford and Hillel@Stanford, please read the Room Reservation Agreement and fill out the submit agreement form:

Rooms at the Ziff Center are available to be rented for Stanford University Voluntary Student Organizations (VSOs), Fraternities and Sororities with room rental fees waived for the school year.
