Reservation Policy

Penfield Classroom 215 (formerly Speakers' Corner Classroom), located on Penfield Library's 2nd floor, may be reserved by any SUNY Oswego faculty or staff member, for educational or academic events.

This room is an enclosed, fresh and modern, technology-enabled classroom with dual projection screens and single instructor station with PC, document camera, and computer audio to support presentations.

Reservations should be made at least 2 weeks in advance, using the form on this page. You can expect a response within 3 working days. This classroom is available year-round.

Group size: 52 seated at tables, or up to 99 people using additional chairs in the back of the room.


Presenters are responsible for publicizing their events. Posters may be hung on library bulletin boards. Directional signs on the day of the event are suggested. The Library will assist with publicity and directional signs for events that are co-sponsored by the Library.


Furniture may be rearranged as needed, but must be returned to the original arrangement following the event. Additional chairs may be requested in the comment box of the reservation form.

Food & Drink

Refreshments may be served and should be arranged through Campus Catering. Alcohol is not permitted without prior approval from Library Administration.

Extra Space for Special Events

The Speakers' Corner, the light-filled, open area adjacent to Penfield Classroom 215, may be reserved in conjunction with the classroom for special events. As this area is open to the rest of the 2nd floor and is a space for student research and study, the Speakers' Corner is available only during non-peak academic times. Please indicate in the comments section of the form if you are interested in using both spaces.
