Reservations involving multiple rooms/spaces on the same day or a single room/space on multiple days may be cancelled with no fee 5 business days in advance.
Fees for late cancelation are 50% of the external charge rate for Non-University and Co-Sponsored/Affiliate events, and 50% of the internal charge rate for University Departments and Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs).
Events are considered ‘no show’ when event participants fail to show up or cancel their event. Additionally, groups are not allowed to use the reserved space for functions other than originally reserved. Failure to show for events and/or use event space as originally confirmed will result in a no-show fee which may be up to 100% of the non-university rate (minimum 50%). Additionally, groups that are considered ‘no shows’ may forfeit the ability to reserve space in the future.
