Lobby Bookings

The Sidney Smith Hall lobby tables are available for recognized student groups, University of Toronto offices and ASSU course unions to book.

Groups may request to book one table (tables measure 60" by 30") and two chairs for events with no sales (fundraisers for campus groups are allowed [bake sales (see below), book sales, etc.]). Commercial activity is not allowed in the lobby. Booking requests will only be considered from recognized campus student groups, U of T offices, and ASSU course unions. In order for a booking request to be considered, a student group must be registered with and recognized by the U of T Office of Student Life Programs (ULife). Course unions requesting space bookings must be recognized by the Arts & Science Student Union (ASSU). The nature and purpose of the event must be specified as part of the space booking process.

Groups may not sponsor or host non-university groups or activities; approved space booking requests at Sidney Smith Hall are for the sole use of the recognized student group listed on the approved space booking request, and not for any other organizations.

The Faculty of Arts & Science reserves the right to direct any individual or group who are using the space inappropriately to exit the premises.

Bake Sales and Food Sales: If you are hosting a Bake Sale, please see the Bake Sales Policy. If you are hosting a special event with foods not included in bake sales, please see the Temporary Food Services Policy. In either case, you must attach approval (for every day you plan to sell food) from Food & Beverage Services to your lobby table booking request. Please note that the selling of baked goods and other foods or items should be done at the assigned table; soliciting sales in classrooms or offices of the building is not permitted.

The maximum number of single table bookings per group per term is five.

Entire lobby bookings are not allowed, with the exception of the Imaginus poster sale and Faculty of Arts & Science sponsored events.

Please check the current availability for the 2018 Winter term before submitting your request.
