Reserving Our Space

Reserving the BCC Gallery or Library

As a courtesy to UIC students, on-campus registered student organizations, UIC departments and units, faculty, staff and our community partners, the BCC Library and Gallery are available to be reserved for meetings and other gatherings at no charge.  Everyone who uses our space agrees to follow our procedures and guidelines.

Who can reserve the BCC Gallery or Library?

We define community partners as organizations that actively collaborate on projects with the BCC.
