Fall Events Update

This page covers information specifically related to the University Student Union facilities. Additional information regarding other campus facilities is currently being developed by the Matador Involvement Center.

This page will be updated frequently when new information becomes available.

This information is current as of September 14, 2021.

Information will be updated and revised in accordance with evolving health and safety guidelines.

At the University Student Union, we are excited to welcome you back for the start of a new academic year! Thank you for submitting your request for your reservation taking place during Aug. 30, 2021 – June 30, 2022. We are committed to providing mitigation practices that promote the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and campus community. With guidance from the Vice President for Student Affairs at California State University, Northridge (CSUN), generally speaking, USU reservations will be limiting event attendance to 50% of space/room capacity. Further, all events must be planned in such a way to promote distancing between participants. Additionally, masks are required for all indoor reservations and for outdoor events with more than 5 attendees.

Event organizers are encouraged to continue to assess, based on current conditions, whether to adjust, postpone, cancel, and reduce the number of attendees to accommodate 50% capacity and distancing during the Fall 2021 semester. We encourage the continued use of remote technologies for meetings, lectures, and events to provide a safer environment for all members of our community. The USU will continue to implement, update, and revise this information as public health officials, state and local agencies, and University officials continue to publish new guidance.

The University Student Union at CSUN is located in Southern California’s beautiful San Fernando Valley and provides an ideal location for meeting and event planners. With a wide variety of attractive multipurpose rooms, our versatile facilities can easily accommodate any event from intimate receptions to trade shows and conferences. The Reservations & Event Services office is recognized as a student training facility where the staff receives hands-on training while actively providing on-site professional meeting planning assistance.
