ROOM USE POLICIES

General Reservations Requirements

Reservations booked through Scheduling and Event Services must adhere to all applicable State and federal laws, as well as University and Scheduling and Event Services policies and procedures. By reserving space through Scheduling and Event Services, the sponsor agrees to these terms and accepts full responsibility for the meeting or event. The event sponsor also agrees to allow Scheduling and Event Services to post their event information on the website and digital displays owned and operated by Student Unions and Involvement.

Co-Sponsorship and Facility Use

Scheduling and Event Services does not allow sponsorship of a non-University event when the non-University group seeks to reduce applicable costs for facilities or services.

  • Should a University group choose to co-sponsor an event with a non-University group, a representative from the University group must act as the primary contact for the event (making the reservation, providing the details, etc.) In addition, in order to receive the University rate, the invoice must be paid through a University Department account. Outside invoices for University sponsored events will not be allowed. The sponsoring group will also be financially responsible for any damages which may occur.

Cancellations and No Shows

  • Campus organizations or departments failing to use reserved space twice a semester (without canceling at least four hours in advance) may lose the use of meeting space in the Student Union for up to one semester, or may lose their ability to schedule serial reservations for a semester.

Room Return

  • Rooms must be left in the original condition in which they were received. This means that there is to be no trash, debris, or items left on the table or floors. All trash is to be placed in bins. Furniture which has been rearranged must be replaced its original location.
