Event Logistics

Room Set-Up

Pepperdine community members have the opportunity to reconfigure existing tables and chairs in campus spaces, and are responsible for returning the furniture to the room’s default layout.

Room Access

Rooms are generally accessible during normal campus hours (8 AM - 10 PM, Monday through Friday).

Community members may sign-out a master key at the graduate campus main reception desk for days when their event requires set-up or clean-up outside of normal campus hours.


Pepperdine community members may utilize signage plaques placed immediately outside of event rooms or bring tasteful and unobstructive signage (such as banners and posters on easels), and are responsible for removing any signage the same day an event concludes.


Pepperdine community members should work directly with their own IT department, if applicable, or contact Jose Juan Hernandez at 310.568.5694 or
