Welcome To Event Services

The Event Services Office (ESO) within Student Engagement and Campus Life supports the Virginia Tech mission by helping Hokies reserve campus spaces and providing support to plan successful events in those spaces. ESO manages reservations for: Squires Student Center, Johnston Student Center, Burruss Hall Auditorium, the Graduate Life Center, and various outdoor locations. In addition, ESO manages requests for advertising locations, such as banners, A-Frame display spots, and display cases inside Squires Student Center. 

In order to best meet the needs of the campus community at the start of the semester, the Event Services Office will now offer the opportunity to book event consultation appointments in advance. This new process will minimize wait times and provide each client quality time and attention to planning their event.


To plan your event and schedule your appointment, please follow these steps:  

1. Submit a space/event request through one of the following methods:

Phone: 540-231-5005
In-person during walk-in hours: 11am to 1pm, Monday-Friday

If you need general guidance on where to start with the event planning process, ideas for spaces, or have general questions, please visit us during walk-in hours, call, or e-mail us!
