MASS Bookings

The Meekison Arts Student Space (MASS), located in Buchanan D140, is a shared study space and bookable events area. Built more than five years ago under the direction of the Arts Undergraduate Society, this space was the result of a long period of lobbying, space programming and donor seeking.

MASS is available for bookings by student, University, and other organizations for meetings, conferences, and other events. Further information can be found in the MASS Bookings Policy and Contract.

If you plan to hold a licensed event, you will require the completion of a Special Occasions License (SOL) and authorization by a designated representative of the AUS. If you are expecting more than 100 people in attendance at your licensed event, you will also require the completion of an Event Safety and Emergency Response Plan (SERP).

  1. One form is only applicable to one booking. The form needs to be filled out more than once for multiple bookings.
  2. All booking requests should be made at least 2 weeks in advance
