The Car Barn 101 Conference Room (Car Barn, Room 101, near the M Street entrance to the Car Barn), is available for use by University organizations, faculty and staff.  A Georgetown University faculty or staff member must make the reservation for a student organization and the faculty or staff person making the reservation must be present at the event to ensure that all the policies for use are followed.  The faculty / staff person is the responsible person for that event.

NOTE: Car Barn 101 is kept locked when not in use.  You may borrow the key to unlock it, as long as you lock back up when finished and return the key.  The key can be obtained from the Graduate School Dean's Office in Car Barn, Suite 400 ( office hours are 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Monday - Friday).  In certain instances, a key may be checked out the day before in advance for early morning access, or later hour lockup;  this is conditional upon existing reservations in the room.  The room must be locked after use and the key must be returned to the Graduate School promptly (by the next morning if after 5:00 p.m.).   You may also borrow the key during a time the room is not scheduled in order to test your computer / AV equipment connections.
