CIL Room Reservations

The Carolyn Barber Pierre Center for Intercultural Life has spaces available for programs and events that center BIPOC and QT communities. We encourage student organizations and campus partners to request spaces as needed. 

 

 

The Reservation Request Process

At least two weeks prior to your event, visit the VEMS website to submit a request to use event space in the Carolyn Barber Pierre Center for Intercultural Life.  After submitting a request you will receive an email letting you know the status of your request. If you do not receive a confirmation email, please contact Sienna Abdulahad at sabdulahad@tulane.edu. Submitting a request does not guarantee the space will be available. Please note that CIL sponsored events will be given priority access.
