Policy for Space Bookings 

The BRIDGE is available for bookings by current UTSC staff, students, and faculty for events that support the mission and vision of The BRIDGE.  

The BRIDGE is an academic teaching space, therefore bookings can only be made at the beginning of the term, once the academic course calendar is confirmed by the Registrar’s Office.  

Priority is given to academic bookings, including lectures, tutorials, workshops, presentations, and seminars related to academic courses, where our technology and software is required.  

Co-curricular events, competitions, board meetings, student club events, and departmental bookings can be made on a first-come-first-serve basis. Student bookings must have a staff or faculty supervisor.
