Please keep in mind the SCS facility is first and foremost an environment for teaching and learning, and SCS reserves the right to determine if an event is appropriate and consistent with the mission and values of Georgetown University. As such, space requests are thoroughly reviewed on an individual basis.

This may include but is not limited to testing, mask-wearing, a requirement for vaccinations, and other protocols deemed necessary by the University.
