PLEASE NOTE:  1601 & 283 MSB Conference Room Policy

First priority for use of Departmental Conference rooms will be for Departmental events (faculty meetings, special departmental seminar presentations, etc.)  Due to the increasing demand on 1601 MSB and 283 BSRB by MIMG faculty and staff we are unable to fulfill room requests made by other departments.

*Process for reserving a room*

Please check the conference room availability first by clicking the links below:

MSB 1601
BSRB 283


Email Pablo Morales (PAMorales@mednet.ucla.edu) once you have chosen an available date and time.

  • Please state the room (1601 or 283), time, date, what the meeting should be labeled on the calendar and what lab you are affiliated with.
  • Please let us know if you decide to cancel your reservation.

In the event that the Department has urgent need of the conference room, the Department may “bump” a scheduled group, and will provide as much prior warning as possible.  Any group “bumped” will be responsible for finding an alternate meeting site.

Use of the conference rooms by individual labs or users for primarily social events during regular working hours is not allowed.

If you plan to have food/beverage service at the event, your group must make arrangements for delivery, serving, and clean up.  This includes removing the bagged trash from conference room (it may be deposited in the large trash bins on the east side of Boyer Hall or in the loading dock of BSRB), wiping down the table tops, and cleaning up any spills.

Groups who leave the rooms in disrepair, or whose activities are disruptive will lose the ability to reserve the rooms for future events.
