Need to change or cancel your reservation?
Interview rooms are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Advance reservations are encouraged. Call 512-471-2425 for day-of availability. Please call 512-471-2425 or email UTcareerservices@austin.utexas.edu to cancel or change your reservation.
Please note that Texas Career Engagement prioritizes employer requests for interview space and that your reservation is subject to cancellation should an employer need a room on an otherwise booked day. We will communicate that need as early as possible should that occur. November to January and April to August tend to have the most capacity for non-employer requests.
Cosponsorship form for Student Organizations
If a student organization wants to host a recruiting event on-campus with a company/employer/organization, they will need to reach out to the Texas Career Engagement office to secure cosponsorship documentation. We encourage forms to be submitted at least 14 days prior to the event date to allow time for processing. Forms may be accepted closer to the event date on a case-by-case basis.
With cosponsorship: Recruitment events are permitted, student organizations receive assistance as needed from Texas Career Engagement, possibility for use of Texas Career Engagement interview space, and employers are vetted per the University policies to ensure quality.
Without cosponsorship: Employers are prohibited from actively recruiting students; collecting resumes or other student information; sharing their information for the purpose of recruiting; tabling; or posting marketing material at these events on-campus.
