Jump to: navigation, search

In an effort to accommodate University events, space in Kennedy Union, Lawnview Apartments, McGinnis Center, Virginia W. Kettering Hall meeting rooms, and University classrooms will be booked according to the following guidelines and timetable:

Internal Groups

For the purpose of reservations, internal groups are defined as those departments with a University account number and those student organizations recognized by the Center for Student Involvement as a registered student organization.

A program qualifies as a University department event when the space is reserved by a University department, the department is actively involved in the planning of the event, the majority of the attendees are employees/students of the University, and the program is charged to a University account. Facilities are available to all University departments at no charge when participants are members of the University community (administrators, faculty, staff, and students) and no fees are assessed to the participants* such as admission fees, donations, or registration fees. Facility charges will be in effect when participant fees are assessed.

The University is pleased to offer its facilities and even planning services to all University registered student organizations. A student organization is recognized as registered once it has completed the necessary application with the Center for Student Involvement located in Kennedy Union Room 241. Facilities are available to all University registered student organizations at no charge when there are no fees assessed to the participants. For events involving admission fees, donations, fund raising benefits, or registration fees, facility fees will be applied.

*Summer Conference charges vary. Please see the Summer Conferences section of this guide for further information.

External Groups

All groups not meeting qualifications for internal groups as listed above, will be considered external and will be required to pay room rental fees and/or fees for services.
