Booking USU Rooms

C&S rooms in the Holme Building and Manning House, and sections of the International Student Lounge (ISL) in the Wentworth Building, can be booked by Executives of registered USU Clubs for events and activities free of charge. These rooms can be booked when submitting a New Event by selecting "USU Managed Venues" from the "Where will you be holding your event?" dropdown menu. 


C&S Room Booking Terms and Conditions:

  1. Clubs must be registered within the C&S Program to retain room bookings. 
  2. Executives may book C&S rooms free of charge on weekdays for a maximum of 2 hours per day (per club, not per room). 
  3. The 2-hour limit may be extended by email request to the C&S Office at [email protected]
  4. Rooms booked outside of normal building open hours may be permitted with special permission from the C&S Office but will incur a staffing charge and must be booked at least 2 weeks in advance. 
  5. Rooms are not available on public holidays or weekends. 
  6. Clubs may not BYO alcohol into any C&S rooms. 
  7. C&S rooms are booked free of charge but come as they are; we do not offer setup or equipment. 
  8. Furniture must be returned to a neat and reasonable layout at the end of each booking. 
  9. At the conclusion of your room booking, rooms must be clean and tidy. All rubbish must be removed, and dirty surfaces wiped where food or drinks have been consumed.
  10. The organiser will be held responsible for any damages and/or cleaning required and will be charged a cleaning fee. 
  11. Any damage or mess discovered in C&S rooms should be reported immediately to the C&S Office at [email protected]
  12. Only approved clubs may use the Elliott Miller Studio, and it must be used for performance/rehearsal purposes, not to conduct meetings. 
  13. Clubs must adhere to all C&S Regulations, as well as USU and University of Sydney Policies and Guidelines at all times.


Why can't I book this room?

  • Bookings are required to be made at least 2 days in advance. If you require a room under short notice, please give us a ring and we may be able to assist you. 
  • If you input an expected number of participants greater than the capacity of a room, that room will not appear as an option for you to book. 
  • If room does appear, but the timeslot you want is not available, someone else has booked it before you. 


Booking for more than two hours

Executives can request to extend a booking by contacting the Clubs Team. We may ask executives to wait until a week before the booking to make the extension, in order to ensure that all clubs have a fair chance of booking USU spaces.


Booking over the holidays

Bookings may still be available over semester breaks, although they may be at reduced hours. Executives should refer to the USU announcement page and Club Notices for specific information.
