Reserving Research Space in the DLRC for an Event

The research spaces in the DLRC may be used for single, Purdue events that may or may not be related to DLRC-related projects. Requests for use of the research facilities for single events should be made through the Administrative Assistant of the DLRC. If the request involves the use of the Science or Project Laboratories, the request will be shared with the Laboratory Coordinator.

To request a research space for an event, please read the guidelines (PDF is here) for use of our spaces and then fill out the form here. Make sure you allow enough time in your request for set-up and cleanup of all spaces, as the doors to the rooms are only unlocked at the times you specify on the request form. If the space is available, the DLRC will send you an agreement form which requires an account number and a signature from a faculty or a permanent staff member (click here to view a copy of this agreement). Upon approval of the agreement form, the DLRC will sign off and return a copy to you for your records.

Some things to note from the guidelines for all spaces:

  • All trash goes into the trash cans and should be monitored so that they do not overflow.
  • All furniture must be placed back to the original configuration. Room layouts are available on the area description links below.
  • All tables, counters, chairs, etc. are cleaned immediately after your event and ready for the next group.
  • FOR RESEARCH LABS (128 and 104) - you must meet with the lab manager two weeks in advance of your event.
  • FOR EVENTS - all after hours (5:00pm-7:00am) events will be required to pay for security personnel - 1 for every 50 people.
  • DLR 134A (the small conference room East of the Atrium) cannot be used as a caterer prep area. There is a kitchenette at the Northwest end of the building for that purpose.
  • Even though we have a signed agreement form, there may be instances where your reservation will be cancelled. We will give you as much notice as possible, were this to happen.
