Reserving Rocky's Sub Shop & Lounge
Whether you want to host a viewing party, board game night, or any other type of event, Rocky’s is a great place to do so. With ample space and easy to use technology, Rocky’s is a flexible and high traffic area for your event. Reserving Rocky’s has no cost and works very similar to reserving any other student life space. The student organization or department is responsible for cleanup of food, garbage, and any decorations. If there is any damage to the space, furniture, or excessive cleaning required after the event, the student organization or department will be charged. Rocky’s cannot be reserved outside of its normal operating hours.
