Usage Policy

Munzer Auditorium’s primary function is to serve as a venue for the School of Medicine research community. The Beckman Center will accept Munzer reservation requests prioritizing research seminar series, one-time seminars and symposia. The order of priority is:

1. Beckman Departments—the academic year

2. School of Medicine and other science departments—the academic year

3. Other departments, SUHC & LPCH departments / lab meetings, training, workshops, orientation, grand rounds — 1 month in advance

The auditorium is available only when the Beckman Center is open, Monday-Friday, 7:00AM to 7:00PM. Events cannot start before 7:00AM nor on or after 7:00PM. We do not accept requests for weekend reservations or from outside organizations.

Cancellation Policy:  Cancellations must be made no later than 48 hours in advance of your event.  "No Shows" may not be accomodated for future bookings.

Food Policy: Food and drink are strictly prohibited in Munzer. Refreshments may only be served AFTER your event. Please advise your caterer to schedule delivery after the event start time. The department/organization/group holding the event is responsible for advising attendees of the policy as well as enforcing it.

Space for receptions is very limited. The small hallway outside Munzer is a fire exit and easily blocked by people congregating around the food table. Please use the ground floor lobby or patio for your post-event refreshments.
