Rooms, Technology and Equipment
The Oak Creek Civic Center has a multitude of rooms available for use.  Study rooms are free to use for up to 4 hours per day (1-8 people) or meeting room rentals are available for use with a fee (1-150 people).  The study rooms do not have any technology in the room (except for the Business Center), whereas the meeting rooms are typically equipped with phone conference equipment (the smaller meeting rooms) and projection monitors that can be hooked up wirelessly or using HDMI/VGA cables.  Study rooms can be booked only a week in advance.  Meeting rooms can be reserved up to 90 days in advance but must be reserved at least 1 week in advance.
