FastForward U Space/Room Request Form

FastForward U Space/Room Request Form

Thank you for your interest in hosting your event at FastForward U. We receive a high volume of requests and as such we give priority to events that align with our mission and serve JHU students directly. Other events will be accommodated as we are able.

Before completing this form, review our online calendar to check availability for the space/room that you wish to reserve.

Please note we are a small staff and we are not able to provide any assistance for the setup, preparation, management, or breakdown of your event. Event organizers must provide staffing for all aspects of their event, including all furniture rearrangements needed. Failure to do so may result in your inability to use the space in the future.

The FastForward U space is used by students and JHU affiliates on a daily basis. If your event requires absolute privacy, meaning our regular users and staff must be barred from accessing any part of the space during your event, please email Kerrie Carden ( with your request and a detailed justification of your need for barring regular users and staff from accessing the space. In support of our mission, we can only accommodate these requests on a very limited basis.

For questions, please email
