Table Bookings

To book a table in the Vari Hall Rotunda, Ross Link, Central Square, Bear Pits, contact:

Student Community and Leadership Development

Vari Hall Rotunda

The Vari Hall Rotunda may be reserved  for organized activities by eligible users.  Because it is a major pedestrian traffic corridor into and out of the central core of the University and is adjacent to classrooms, the use of the Rotunda is dependent on nature and scope of an event. 

Contact The TUUS Office for information on using the Rotunda for organized events.


  • Up to 10 information tables are available to be booked on days during the academic term, except when special University events have been scheduled.  Tables are booked through Student Community and Leadership Development at 416-736-5144.

Special Events

  • Up to 15 days in each of the Fall and Winter terms will be set aside for special University and student community events (such as information fairs, etc.) to occupy all bookable space in the Rotunda.
  • To ensure availability, Vari Hall Rotunda requests should be made prior to the start of each academic term through the YU Room Request Form


  • To prevent disruption to academic and administrative operations, use of Sound amplification devices or megaphones are not permitted in the Rotunda, Link, or Central Square
  • Users will not affix signs, banners, posters or other materials to the wood paneling in the Rotunda because the adhesives cause damage to these surfaces

Academic and Administrative Offices, Research Units and Employee Groups

Recognized Student Organizations

  • Light refreshments and food items, arranged with the University’s food services office, may be served in designated areas (including on the second floor).
  • If tables, audio/visual equipment and computer equipment are used, then the organizer should take due care with pedestrian paths. Duct tape should be used to cover all wires to eliminate trip hazards.
  • The sponsoring of third-party vendors and other commercial/retail activity in the Rotunda requires licensing by the Assistant Vice-President Campus Services & Business Operations.  Student groups wishing to sponsor third party vendors and commercial/retail tables are encouraged to make use of the Student Centre for these purposes.
