Zinner Forum Reservations

The Zinner Forum is available to all university faculty, staff and students for casual or formal events. Given that it is Heller's primary gathering space, there are certain restrictions on its use.

To inquire about reserving  Zinner Forum, contact the Heller Events team and/or complete an Event Request Form. Students interested in reserving the forum should refer to the Heller Students event planning page.

Zinner Forum Policies and Tips

  • Zinner podium instructions

  • Since the Zinner Forum is Heller's primary gathering space, events may not be held prior to 6:00pm on weekdays. This allows students to gather when there are no classes and also for less disruption during your event.

  • If a classroom is available and will fit your audience, that will be booked rather than the Zinner Forum.

  • When setting up  your event, store the existing red chairs, small tables and café tables near the library, not the hall near the classrooms.

  • As soon as possible in your event planning process, contact Media Technology Services (x6-4632) for technical assistance with dual-mode events and meetings, and to reserve a lapel microphone or wireless microphone. Other microphones will not work in the Forum or may interfere with the programming. A lapel microphone and wireless microphone cannot be used at the same time since they use the same frequency.  MTS can also supply video cameras and technical support people for dual-mode events. 

  • Balloons and candles are not permitted in the Zinner Forum.

  • If you hang items or use any sort of tape, you must remove it from all surfaces immediately following your event.
