Table Booking Policy

Table booking requests within academic buildings is a benefit offered to UofT/UTM (Ulife) recognized groups, staff and faculty of the University of Toronto; this benefit is facilitated through the Centre for Student Engagement on behalf of the University. Table booking requests must be completed online through the table booking system and submitted at least three (3) days in advance. 

  • On campus tables are to be used for promoting organization related, non-commercial events and activities. 
  • Table booking may be requested in Kaneff, Deerfield Hall, CCT Link, CCT Atrium, Instructional Building lobby, New North, and Davis.
  • One (1) table and two (2) chairs are provided between 10:00am to 3:00pm unless requested otherwise.
  • To maximize opportunities for different groups table bookings are limited to a maximum of one (1) booking per day, five (5) per week, fifteen (15) per month.
  • If there is a unique circumstance that requires tabling in more than one (1) location in a day, more than one (1) table, or tabling outside of 10:00am to 3:00pm please contact studentorganizations.utm@utoronto.ca.
  • You will receive a confirmation e-mail if your booking has been approved. If you do not receive a confirmation email prior to your requested table booking, please contact studentorganizations.utm@utoronto.ca. Without a confirmation email, table bookings are not officially approved.
  • You must book your table a minimum of three (3) days before the requested date. Last minute requests can no longer be accommodated.

Conditions/Requirements

  • The table must not be left unattended during your booking time(s);

  • Vending or distribution of food and drinks, including baked goods, is not allowed;
  • No displays, materials, or activities can interfere with pedestrian passage or the normal activities of the University;
  • Users are responsible for removing all materials from their table at the conclusion of their booking;
  • In a diverse campus such as ours, it is common to have opposing views, values, and missions.    The University of Toronto Mississauga is committed to providing all Ulife approved organizations with the opportunity to use tabling as an effective outreach tool. The Student Engagement Coordinator may request a meeting to discuss steps to be taken to ensure the safety of your group members and the community;
  • Users may not move tables from their designated areas of set up;
  • If a student organization or department chooses to invite or collaborate with a third party not associated with the university to table on their behalf, a member from the student organization or department must be present at all times the table is booked. The student organization or department is responsible for the third party and if the third party violates any of the tabling conditions, the student organization or department will receive a warning and authorization for promotional tables may be withdrawn;
  • Failure to utilize your booking penalizes other groups who could have used these limited spaces. If you need to cancel your booking, please review the confirmation email as you can cancel within that page. You may also contact Conference Services at confserv.utm@utoronto.ca
  • The table permit confirmation email must be readily available at the table.  You will receive this confirmation email once your booking has been finalized. You can not table without confirmation of a booking.

Violation of any of these conditions may result in authorization for promotional tables being immediately withdrawn. A verbal warning will be issued after the first violation (unless the condition violated is failure to utilize a booking. An email will be sent). A written warning will be issued after the second violation. After a third violation an organization’s table booking privileges will be revoked for a ten (10) business day period of time. Further violations will result in revocation of table booking privileges for an extended period (e.g. remainder of semester, remainder of academic year, etc.)
