STUDENT UNION FACILITIES

The University has designated certain academic and non-academic facilities for student use.

The facilities are reserved through the Student Union Office which is located in the Office of Student Life.

These facilities include some academic buildings and auditoriums, the Student Union, Century Club Room, Ayo Swimming Pool, Tennis Courts, Callais Recreation Center, John L. Guidry Stadium, parking lots and any outside lawn area.

Inquire at the Office of Union Services and Facilities for the type of event allowed at each facility and the policies that pertain to the reservation request.

The following is a list of non-academic facilities reserved through the Office of Union Services and Facilities along with capacities for each. Since meeting space in the Student Union is a much needed commodity, we have established standard setups for several rooms. These styles were based upon the utilization report that indicates the most popular arrangement for each room.

STUDENT UNION FACILITIES

The Bayou Suite consists of the Terrebonne, Teche and Lafourche Rooms. The suite is located on the Mezzanine level of the Student Union and has portable dividers that seperate each room. The suite may be used as two or three small rooms or one large room. Reservations for this area are limited due to the lack of handicap access to the upper floor area. Food and beverages are allowed in this area with approval from the Office of Union Services and Facilities. Dances are not allowed in this area due to the carpeted floor.
