Use of the Physics Research Building (PRB) for various University events has become
popular and is actively encouraged by the Department. However, event coordinators
are respectfully asked to be mindful of the core function of the PRB as a research
facility. Although the PRB can serve as an excellent event venue, the Department
is not in the event business and can provide only limited event support. The document
and gridded layouts below serve as tools for event coordinators to use in developing
the detailed plans they will need to achieve a successful event at the PRB.
In addition to the planning guide above, the below PDF files give a “to scale” grid
tool showing the floor plan of the Atrium and Vernier Commons area that can be used
by event planners to lay out event configurations.
