Guidelines for Reserving the MILL

The MILL regularly hosts workshops, programs, and special events that promote interdisciplinary collaboration. We are particularly interested in programs that:

  • Engage users in new research methods
  • Engage users with important research issues, such as intellectual property and open access
  • Include researchers across disciplines
  • Showcase research, especially cross-disciplinary research
  • Leverage new technologies
  • Are open to the entire UVA community

Decisions about use of the space are at the sole discretion of the MILL advisory group.

How can I reserve a room for my event?

Submit details of your event (date, time, number of attendees, AV requirments, catering) to  The MILL advisory group will review your proposal and get back to you.


The MILL event space can hold up to 70 occupants.



  • The MILL is a community space, so whiteboards are erased every morning.
  • Food and drink are permitted.  You are responsible for all catering arrangements, setup and cleanup.
