Making Your Reservation
Once you have decided on a venue that you are interested in utilizing, please check our Venue Calendar for availability. If the venue is not shown as occupied, then please download the BRC Reservation Request Form, fill it out and email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm availability. Event venues are reserved on a first come, first served basis for BRC tenants. Guidelines for advance reservation of BRC venues are as follows:
All reservation requests are subject to review and must be approved by BRC Management. Weekend events must also be approved by BRC Management and are subject to staff availability. Please note when planning your event, AV support is not available after hours or on the weekends and most likely you will be referred to an outside contractor if AV support is essential. Additional inquiries may be directed to Munira Vejlani, Events Specialist at 713-348-8407 or via email at email@example.com.
