Use of Lobby Space

Registered student organizations may reserve a promotions table in the DeVos Center Plaza to promote memberships, events, or conduct fundraising activities and must abide by the following conditions:

  • Groups must first submit a GVSU Fundraising Application to the Office of Student Life, 110 Kirkhof Center, Allendale, at least five days prior to the event.  This application requires signatures of the organizations president and advisor. 
    Applications can also be obtained in 101B DeVos Center-Pew Campus
  • The promotions table can be reserved during the approval process to hold the date; however, permission for use will not be granted until an approved fundraising application is received by Pew Student Services.  To secure space, please call Pew Student Services at 331-7220.
  • If the activity involves selling food or beverage, the student organization must also have obtained an approved food waiver from ARA Campus Dining Services, in advance.  Food waivers are typically limited to the sale of home-baked goods.
