About Room Reservations

One of the primary functions of the Detroit Center is to offer space for meetings and events. From here you can place a request to reserve a room for your meeting, lecture or other event.

Before placing a reservation request, please understand the following:

  • Room reservations must include setup and teardown times, as we do book rooms back to back
  • Online reservation requests do not guarantee the requested room, date or time
  • Confirmation of your request will be sent via e-mail immediately
  • A separate e-mail will be sent within 24-48 hours detailing the status of your request
  • Requests must be made at least 48 hours prior to intended start time
  • Room cancellations must be made within 24 hours of your event start time; any events cancelled less than 24 hours prior or any no-show events are subject to a $33 cancellation fee
  • Room time is reserved in increments of 15-minute intervals (15, 30, 45, etc.)
  • University of Michigan units are required to provide a shortcode to reserve rooms at the Detroit Center; the shortcode will only be used if your unit reserves a room but fails to cancel it within 24 hours, if the room is no longer needed, or if your unit does not show for the event; if you have any question about this policy, please contact The Detroit Center at [email protected]

Rental Cost:

  • University of Michigan units: Free of Charge
  • U-M Alumni, non-profit, and community-based organizations are eligible for discounts on our published rates.
    • U-M partner organizations can reserve space for free for a limited number of uses. Please submit all inquiries to the Detroit Center.
  • There is a charge for U-M units, U-M Alumni, Non-Profits, and Organizations, if the event is after-hours.
