Macon Request Form

Prior to making a request, review Event Resources to see Setup Details (tables and chairs) and A/V fees where they apply. Also, see the suggestions below that will allow your event and our processing to run seamlessly:

  • PLEASE BE MINDFUL of high volume events which may place limits on already limited space (i.e.: Homecoming, Make it Mercer, Admissions events, Testing, etc.) These events limit parking, facilities, and resources. Scheduling your events around these large events increases the likelihood that your event can be accommodated.
  • PLEASE PRE-PLAN  to allow for time to advertise your event after space is confirmed. The system will not allow a request to be submitted less than ten business days in advance of your desired date. This allows us to better serve you by accommodating your space and resources in enough time for you to advertise and for our staff to be available for setup.
  • PLEASE BE FLEXIBLE as processing of requests is ongoing and what space appears available today may not be available when your event is reserved by our office.

Note that our office reserves the ability to place your event somewhere other than your preferred space at our discretion. For instance, if your meeting can fit in a classroom that has all requested resources this may be a decision we make for the sake of space utilization. Thank you for your support!
