Meeting and conference facilities and services at UN Geneva are intended primarily for meetings and conferences listed in the official UN Calendar of Conferences approved by the General Assembly and for informal meetings of regional or other established groups of Member States upon request of the Chairman of the group, in accordance with established procedures.

Subject to availability, and in accordance with ECOSOC resolution 1996/31, which governs the consultative arrangements between the United Nations and NGOs, accommodation may be provided for conferences or smaller meetings of NGOs with ECOSOC consultative status.

Meeting rooms may only be granted for activities that are in keeping with the United Nations purposes and objectives, as defined in the Charter and that are strictly non-commercial. Rooms cannot be made available for NGOs to conduct their own organizational business or advance their own purposes and aims.
