The room will depend on the nature of the activity.  It would be best to run any event that is open to a larger group in a publicly accessible lecture room such as one of the lecture rooms on Level 2.  Workshops could be delivered in the Level 3 computer lab if software is required.  Smaller events can be hosted on Level 4.

You do not need to RSVP.
