Peirce Hall Scheduling
Most Peirce Hall areas are scheduled on a first-come, first -served basis. Peirce Hall's primary purpose is the serving of meals to our student population. Since this is the only dining facility on campus, student dining must always be the first priority when scheduling events. The prioritized list is as follows:
- Student Meals see http://kenyon.avifoodweb.com/hours.html for schedule.
- The President's Office and All Campus Events
- College Relations and Admissions Events
- Departments within the College that promote Faculty-Student Interaction
- Outside Groups with special permission
The above priority list pertains to the following "reservable" areas:
Great Hall, Thomas Dining, Alumni Dining, Private Dining Rooms, Pub
This hierarchy does not include Bemis Music Room, Roth Computer Lab or any other rooms that have been established as "Classrooms" by the Registrar's Office during the semester.
