NIH conference facilities are available for use by all Federal Government and Federal Government sponsored organizations subject to the following reservation and use priorities:

    • The Director, NIH, and reservations made through the Office of the Director for HHS Secretary and equivalent or higher Government Officials
    • IC Advisory Councils and Boards of Scientific Counselors
    • IC sponsored International, National and Regional Conferences and Symposia
    • Official NIH Meetings
    • Non-NIH Official Government Meetings; i.e., FAES and R&W

Reservations may be subject to displacement by events with a higher priority. Should displacement occur as a result of a higher priority event, you will be notified immediately and every effort will be made to accommodate the displaced activity in another NIH conference facility.
