To make a reservation

Reservations can be made over the phone or at the Student Association office (CC B84) on the University at Albany's uptown campus. 
All questions regarding availability should be directed to the following number:
Telephone: (518) 442-5640

Academic Year Hours: Monday – Thursday 9:00 am – 5:00 pm and Friday: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Reservations may be made up to three (3) months in advance i.e if you wish to make a reservation for September, you would be able to do so beginning July 1.

For large functions that require the entire facility you may book more than three months in advance, please call for details on our full facility rental.

We take reservations 3 months in advance including the month that you are in: i.e. – we are currently taking reservations for February, March and April. We will begin making reservations for May on the first business day in March. On the first business day of the month when we open a new month for reservations, walk-in reservations are given priority over phone-in. The only exceptions to our 3 months in advance policy are full facility rentals, and our annual Student Association/Administrator Summer Retreat.

The SA office is always closed when classes are suspended, and are closed between the last day of finals of the fall semester and the first day of classes of the spring semester. Check the UAlbany website for details on when classes are suspended:

All payment is due at the time the reservation is made – we take Visa, MasterCard or cash (in person only)
