For University Affiliates

The Library welcomes campus organizations, University-affiliated groups, and public groups to hold meetings, workshops, special events, etc. in Morris Library. As of January, 2014 Morris Library will no longer be charging fees for the rental of any of our event spaces to SIU campus affiliates. However, there are fees for non-SIU affiliated groups. Review the rate information for non-SIU affiliates.
