University Debate Chamber
University Debate Chamber Guidelines Coordinator: Terri Gartner
The University Debate Chamber is a performance-based space. The room may be used for debates, oratorical events and contests and classes for debates and speeches. This space will not be reserved for meetings or conferences. The Debate Chamber seats 68 people. The Debate Chamber can only be reserved by Faculty or Staff. Faculty or Staff must be present at any and all events held in the University Debate Chamber. Absolutely no food or drink will be allowed in the Chamber. Chairs or additional furniture may not be brought into the Chamber. Furniture may not be ‘borrowed’ from the Chamber. Please leave the room in the same condition you found it. Projections screens should be raised, window shades should be up and lights should be off.
Please contact Instructional Services (817-257-7121) at least 72 hours before your event if you have technology requirements. They will brief you on the use of the computer and document camera provided in the Chamber 30 minutes before your event. If you have already been briefed, you will not need this service. Please email Terri Gartner at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve the Chamber.
The Incubator Lab
The Incubator Lab is an interdisciplinary space for the collaboration and generation of ideas and projects. This room may be used for events or meetings that require a space to foster new ideas or planning. To facilitate this work, beyond the standard technological features found in Rees-Jones, there are also writeable walls surrounding the space. Reservations can be made for single-day or multi-day use, such as a three-day event, allowing users to leave their work up overnight, and for this reason reoccurring events such as classes or department meetings cannot be scheduled in the Incubator Lab.
The Global Seminar Room
The Global Seminar room allows users to connect with others by using video conferencing software, such as Skype, with a hardwired connection for less delay whether with someone across Fort Worth or across the globe. In addition, the tiered arrangement seats up to 30 people, which allows every person to have a desk space and a good view on one of the two front displays. Reservations can be made for single-day or multi-day use, and for this reason reoccurring events such as classes or department meetings cannot be scheduled in the Global Seminar room.
The Atrium of Rees-Jones Hall
The Atrium of Rees-Jones Hall can also be reserved for events ranging from an informal gathering between proceedings in other reserved rooms to a sit-down formal dinner seating about 80 people. Food and drink are allowed in the Atrium; however, it is recommended that the location for food and drink arrangement be discussed with the confirmation of the reservation to ensure it does not interfere with academic activities or other reservations.
