New Room Capacity Announcement and Interim Policy on Large Events and Gatherings

Due to social distancing, the capacity for the general assignment rooms have changed. View new room capacity information.

Interim Policy on Large Events and Gatherings | Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources

Interim Policy on Large Events and Gatherings. Updated April 30, 2020 has been extended through June 30, 2021. We must support every action that helps to “flatten the curve” of new COVID-19 cases. To limit the spread of the virus in our workplace and Bay Area community – and to help hospitals and clinics manage the increase in demand for care – UCSF is taking the following steps:

  • All non-essential events and gatherings – those involving 10 or more people – shall be cancelled or postponed, in accordance with the interim policy on large events and gatherings.
  • Event organizers must prioritize alternatives – such as teleconferencing – rather than hold in-person gatherings.
  • Events and gatherings that are essential to the operation of UCSF, a healthcare institution, may be exempted. Please complete this form for guidance.

We will not be accepting any reservations for events in any of the General Assignment classrooms through the Summer academic quarter, September 7, 2021, unless there is an essential need for face to face meetings or hands on training. Any other requests need to be vetted by their department’s Dean and then forwarded to us.

This will apply for all reservation requests except for the academic numbered courses that are listed on the UCSF Course catalog.

All non-essential events and gatherings have been cancelled or postponed. Those who believe that an in-person event is essential must complete this form to request an exception. Any exception will need to be pre-approved in writing by the Chancellor

Additionally, any event with more than 10 participants will need to have their event approved by the EOC (Emergency Operations Center).

Anyone interested in reserving a classroom must fill out the EOC exemption form prior to submitting a room request on 25Live. This applies to all classroom reservation requests.

Cleaning Requirements

Once the room reservation request has been confirmed, a work order will need to be submitted to Facilities to have the room cleaned before and after your event.

This is a requirement for the reservations in our general assignment rooms and in other venues on UCSF campuses in order to keep our community safe.

Submit a cleaning service request.

New Submission Announcement

We will not accept submissions with less than 5 days advance notice.  This also applies for any event that occur during the weekend.

New Rates Announcement

Effective July 1, 2020, Educational Technology Services rates for 2020/2021 through 2022/2023 will increase. See new rates.
