Reserve A&S Space - Non-Credit Use – Summer Sessions


This policy covers the process for reserving classroom or teaching laboratory space not needed for Trinity College undergraduate and graduate programs or Continuing Studies programs during the summer months. Access to such academic spaces is administered by the Director of Summer Sessions in collaboration with the Trinity College of Arts & Sciences Office of Facilities.

The demand for summer enrichment program space in particular now exceeds available facility space. Non-Trinity programs and units who have used our facilities in the past cannot be guaranteed space in the future. First priority will be given to TCA&S academic needs: Summer Session, Continuing Studies, Trinity College Camps. Every effort will be made to accommodate as many programs as is feasible.

Program Managers requesting space are responsible for compliance with Duke's Policy for Minors in University Programs, and Duke Occupational and Environmental Safety requirements for laboratory access.


The Director of Summer Sessions must review and approve all requests for TCA&S space for the summer months. The reservation process requires two parts: First, submit an online request to have the activity reviewed by the Director of Summer Sessions. If the activity is approved, Robin.Harris@duke.edu will send you an email to indicate your request has been approved. This email may contain additional question to assist Robin’s team to schedule suitable spaces for your group. You will receive an email confirmation. It is your responsibility to review and check the confirmation for accuracy and to notify Robin within 10 business days with questions or to request any changes.

Summer space reservation requests will not be processed until all academic classes and continuing studies courses have been assigned space. Reservations are processed after March 1st for summer session.
