(for Amherst Campus room reservations, please contact Rene’ M. Shofner.)

PLEASE NOTE: The scheduling of Medaille College events MUST take precedence over all Outside Entity reservations. Medaille College reserves the right to cancel these reservations (1) if they conflict in any way with the policies or regulations of the College regarding meetings on campus or (2) if they violate any federal, state or local law.


  • All requests must be submitted via the Event Registration Form, regardless of the reason for use of the space.
  • All requests require at least two (2) weeks’ notice. Event Registration Forms that are submitted and provide less than two (2) weeks’ notice cannot be guaranteed. Room availability, Aramark set-up assistance, A/V support, and/or Chartwells catering may not be available.
  • Please allow at least 1–2 business days for requests to be reviewed. Approvals are not given immediately upon request.

  • Students are not permitted to reserve space on the Buffalo Campus. A faculty or staff adviser MUST sign and submit the request.
  • Non-Medaille groups must sign the Insurance Requirements/Hold Harmless Form and supply the College with an up-to-date Certificate of Liability. Reservation requests will not be reviewed or approved without having these documents in place. Rental fees as outlined in the rental policy apply for outside entities reserving Campus space.

I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
