Library spaces are primarily for academic use and we do not schedule large events during weekday daytime hours or final exams. KL 155 and KL 355 are available for limited use by UC Merced departments. Clubs must coordinate with the Office of Student Life to reserve KL 155. 

  • Reservation requests require approval from the University Librarian. Reserve through the Campus Reservation System, select "Library Event/Meeting Space" from drop down menu.
  • Reservations should be made as far in advance as possible.
