Abbey Memorial Chapel or Interfaith Sanctuary
Chapel reservations can be requested for organ practice sessions for organ students. Chapel and Sanctuary reservations can be requested by college faculty, staff and students for college events. For information regarding weddings, outside organizations or private events, please see Conference and Event Services. Note that all reservations must be made at least 3 days prior to your event so the office staff has sufficient time to reserve the space for you. No reservations will be accepted by any other means than the on-line forms listed below. The Office of Religious & Spiritual Life closes on Fridays during the academic year at 4 pm. Any reservation requests sent in on Friday after 3:15 will not be made until the following Monday morning.
Abbey Memorial Chapel:
The Eliot House Lounge and the Eliot House Kitchen, Kosher Kitchen and Halal Kitchen may be reserved for events by Eliot House supported faith groups. Non-Eliot House supported groups are required to get the approval of one of our Chaplains or Advisors prior to filling out the reservation form.
The Eliot House kitchens (Eliot House, Kosher or Halal kitchens) are considered by the Town of South Hadley as Commercially Licensed Kitchens and the Federal, State and local ServSafe Food Regulations must be followed. Those using the kitchens must have "Person in Charge, (PIC)" training from our Kitchen Manager prior to using the kitchen. The training is offered in the beginning of each semester and also right before Passover. Each fall at the start of the new academic year, you need to repeat the training. If interested in this training, email John Higgins to receive training dates as they occur.
The Eliot House lounge can also be used without access to any of the kitchens. The only food items that can be served without the use of the kitchens are bottled drinks, store-bought cookies, chips, or whole fruit. Other foods may be potentially hazardous foods which would require the use of the kitchen.
