Walk in use should be limited to small groups of no more than 8 guests unless previously approved.  Reservations for exclusive use are accepted after the daily walk in period and up until 10:00pm each evening. 

Reservations for any Community center room must be made seven days in advance so we may schedule the Community Service Officer (CSO), janitorial and other like services.  The CSO is a campus police liaison and onsite after ICHA business hours to assist with basic facility needs.

The Community Room offers a large interior space and direct access to a service kitchen and counter.  The use area may be significantly enlarged by opening the exterior walls to adjoining covered patio areas.  There are currently 4 tables and 64 chairs available for use within this space.  The Event Building and adjoining open areas are covered within a UCI Net ID Wireless Computer Network.
