Reservation Requests


Due to college expansion construction, we have limited space availability for non-TMC Affiliates and are therefore limiting reservations to a maximum of three reservations each quarter. We appreciate your understanding.

Thurgood Marshall College Residential Life is happy to support campus community events, programs, and meetings through our reservation system. Our office manages the reservations for our spaces and equipment. Please be sure to read all the guidelines below before submitting your reservation request.
