Guidelines for Use of Car Barn 230 Conference Room

The Car Barn 230 Conference Room (Car Barn, Room 230, near the M Street elevator), is available for use by University organizations, faculty and staff. For student organizations, 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.

Hours for Use

The Graduate School Conference Room 230 is only available for use only from 8:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday only (and is not available evenings, weekends, or University holidays), on a first-come, reserved basis. Car Barn 230 is intended as a conference and meeting room, and should not be scheduled as a recurring class meeting space.

NOTE: Car Barn 230 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. In certain instances, a key may be checked out 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.

Rick or the Graduate School Deans' staff will then accept your invitation if we can approve the event reservation (if not, you will be contacted to reschedule).
