Event Planning

Reservations & Policies


The following, but not limited to: tables, chairs, linens, cutlery, and electronics are available for reservation through the Events Office; however, they may only be reserved for Rice Engineering events. Persons in charge of non-engineering events must make provisions for rental tables, linens, and chairs. These rentals must be removed immediately after the event.

The SoE owns rectangular tables that are kept in Martel Kitchen; these are always on a first-come-first serve basis — no reservation needed and cannot be removed from the premises. There is a code for the kitchen access, but the code is only for faculty and staff use. If you are not from Rice Engineering, your sponsor can open the doors for you, or you may place a work request with Facilities Engineering and Planning.

Engineering departments may request supplies and equipment by contacting the events coordinator and submitting the following forms:

Note: Not all requests can be accommodated. You will receive a confirmation email if your request is approved.
