Space Allocation Process

There are a limited number of offices in the east wing of the Union third floor available for use by student organizations. Each spring the Union Policy Board will make available Office Request/Renewal Forms. Student organizations wanting office space must fill out the forms, attach any appropriate documentation requested, and turn it in prior to the published deadline. Late forms will be accepted, but they will not be acted upon until all the on-time forms have been reviewed. Currently having an office space does not guarantee a group a space again; organizations must apply each year.

Office space is to be used for student organization business only. All other activity, such as homework, socializing, lounging, etc., are secondary uses of the space and are not legitimate reasons for an organization to be granted an office. Since meeting rooms are available at no cost to student groups (pre-paid for by student fees), organizations requesting office space in order to hold meetings is also not a high priority reason for being granted space. Office assignments will be based on number of people in the organization, number and types of activities the organization produces, services the organization provides, and impact the organization has on the UWM campus as a whole.
