Contracts and Outside Vendors/Merchandise

NO Registered Student Organization may enter into a contract for services without approval of the Student Involvement Office. This includes contracts for performing artists, lectures, novelties, and the like. Additionally, all contracts must be signed by the Associate Director of the University Student Centers for Student Involvement or designee. Fraternities and Sororities contracting for any services on campus must have the contract approved by the Assistant Director of the University Student Centers for Student Involvement or designee. Student Organizations wishing to rent novelty equipment that involves physical activity (such as Velcro walls, jousting, moon walks, climbing walls, etc) may only rent such equipment from outside vendors that carry liability insurance of an amount no less than 5 million dollars. A list of such novelty companies is available from the Student Involvement Office. Student Organizations wishing to host outside vendor "tours" for on campus promotion must get approval from the Student Involvement Office. Such "tours" are events where outside companies wish to promote their products and materials on campus usually associated with some kind of carnival-like atmosphere. The Student Involvement Office must ensure that products and vendors do not violate any of the University's established contracts with other outside vendors.

Contracts with Technical Requirements

All contracts and technical riders for a performer or presenter that state audio and/or visual equipment requirements should be sent to the Event Services office prior to the signed agreement. By prior notification, the Event Services office is able to verify the ability of the University Student Centers to comply with the stated needs of the presenter or performer. Technical or multimedia additions for all events should be sent to the Event Services office seven days prior to the scheduled event.

A technician is needed for stage lighting and/or sound in Bacchus, Rodney Room, the Scrounge, The TUC Multipurpose Room, and the Trabant Theater.

Any questions on Multimedia or Technical equipment for USC room reservations should directed to the USC Conference Technician at (302)831-0610.
