Davis Hub Events FAQ

How do I reserve the Research Hub?

Request a reservation using the Space Use Request Form after reading the Davis Hub Usage Guidelines and these FAQs.
Submitting a request does not guarantee your reservation; you will receive an email confirmation from the Hub staff. Decisions about reservations are at the sole discretion of the Library.

How many people does the room hold? 50

We are having a presentation. Should I bring my laptop?

It is possible to project from a laptop, via VGA or HDMI- be sure to bring an adapter if needed. There is also a PC in the room with a standard Windows setup, Internet access, and USB drive.

What type of audio-visual equipment is available?

Refer to the list at the end of the Davis Hub Usage Guidelines.

Is there someone that can help me with the audio-visual equipment?

Yes. Ask for an appointment when you submit your request.

Where should we put trash?

Trash cans will be provided in the Hub.

Can the room be re-arranged to accommodate my program needs?

Yes, tables and chairs may be moved, provided that the fire lanes are kept clear and furniture is returned to its original location when the event is over. Your group is responsible for setting up the room and putting it back when the event is over as we have no event staff. Reference the Davis Hub Usage Guidelines for the diagram of the correct furniture placement. Please note: the curved baffles around the space are not moveable.

Are there tables available?

24 four-foot tables are part of the default classroom-style setup (with chairs) and there are a few counters at bar-table height (with tall chairs) built into the curved baffles around the edges of the presentation space.

How far in advance can I make a reservation?

Reservations may be made up to three months in advance.

Can groups not affiliated with the University reserve the Research Hub?


Do you provide tablecloths?


Is parking available?

Visit https://move.unc.edu/parking/ for parking information.

Can we put up decorations or posters?

No. Nothing should be attached to the walls or ceiling.

Does the room have wireless access?


I left something in the Hub after an event and it’s gone. What do I do?

The Library assumes no liability for items lost or stolen at Research Hub events but you may check the lost and found at the Davis Library Circulation Desk on the first floor to see if someone turned in the item.
