General Event Services Questions
How do I reserve a room?
Room reservations are made online from the Forms Page; simply fill out the form that relates to your organization. A representative will contact you to let you know if you have the space or not, and if any additional information is needed. Please be advised that the initial email you receive following the submission of your request is only a confirmation of receipt of the request, and not a confirmation for the reservation itself.

How do I cancel a room?
Room cancellations are made online from the Forms Page and must be received by 3:30pm on the last business day preceding the reservation. Reservations for the Multipurpose Room MUST be cancelled 2 weeks prior to the reservation date. Cancellations or no-shows with less than 2 weeks notice will incur a cancellation fee of $500.00.

Can I have food/music/movies/animals/etc. at my event?
