One of the primary functions of the Detroit Center is to offer space for meetings and events. From here you can place a request to reserve a room for your meeting, lecture or other event.

Before placing a reservation request, please understand the following:

  • Online reservation requests do not guarantee the requested room, date or time
  • Confirmation of your request will be sent via e-mail immediately
  • A separate e-mail will be sent within 24-48 hours detailing the status of your request
  • Requests must be made at least 48 hours prior to intended start time
  • Room cancellations must be made within three days of your event start time. Any canceled event is subject to a $100 cancellation fee.
  • Room time is reserved in increments of 15-minute intervals (15, 30, 45, etc.)
  • University of Michigan units are required to provide a shortcode to reserve rooms at the Detroit Center. The shortcode will only be used if your unit reserves a room, but: 1.) fails to cancel it within 24 hours if the room is no longer needed; or, 2.) reserves a room for a specific time, but fail to occupy the room within 2 hours of the start time. If you have any question about this policy, please contact Associate Director Feodies Shipp –
