2022 UROC Room Rental Guidelines
The University of Minnesota Robert J. Jones Urban Research and Outreach-Engagement Center is open to the public from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, from 8:30 to 5 p.m. on Fridays, and from 8:30 to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.
UROC requires daily electronic check-in of all visitors, including staff and faculty. UROC room rental and parking lot reservations are available on a limited basis based on MDH and University safety protocols.
Please note that while the UROC's lobby and meeting spaces are open to the public, UROC's free-access public computers are not available at this time.
Organizations interested in using UROC's parking lot and grounds for a community-focused event, must complete the Parking Lot Request Form. Please note that in all cases, the UROC building will remain closed and staff will not be on hand to assist with events. During this time, the building's equipment including tables, chairs, and other items will not be available for use—including the facility's bathrooms and outdoor water supplies. Please be prepared to furnish all items needed for your outdoor event including parking cones, chairs, tables, and water supplies.
