Frequently Asked Questions
Being multi-functional spaces, the Chattanooga Rooms and the Tennessee Room can be set to meet the specific needs of your event, and the capacities of those spaces depend on the set-up type. You can find a breakdown of the capacities by set-up type here. For set-ups where there would be a defined front of the room (auditorium, banquet, etc.) we have allocated space for a small stage, podium, etc. For events with food, we have allocated for tables used by catering. Please remember, as additional tables and chairs are needed for a set-up (ex. display tables around the room in a banquet set-up) that may impact the capacity of that space.
The reservation system for on-campus entities allows for the reservation of space up to 450 days in advance. Non-UTC entities can book conferences in the University Center up to one year in advance. For evening meetings non-UTC entities can book three months in advance.
The Tennessee Room is the only space in the University Center where alcohol is permitted during evnets, and permission must be received from the Chancellors Office in order to have alcohol at an event. You can find the Alcohol Policy and the Alcohol Permission Request Form on the Chancellor's Office website.
It should be noted, events found to be in violation of the alcohol policy will be ended immediately.
