Facility and Space Use Guidelines

All weekend scheduling of building usage will be optimized consistent with the approved academic and non-academic programs to reduce the number of buildings operating at partial or low occupancy. Therefore, unless absolutely necessary reservations will be placed in the most used buildings first.

Food and Beverage is not allowed in any classroom on campus. Water is acceptable. If it is necessary to provide extensive cleaning after an event, not adhering to these rules, applicable charges may be added.

Paper and other items may not be taped to the wall in any classroom. Most tape when pulled off will also take the paint with it. Your group will be responsible for any damage to the facilities and any charges associated with the repair of the facilities.

Skateboards, scooters, and roller skates/blades are not allowed in any building on campus. If a participant from your group is caught using this equipment within a building, your group may be responsible for any damage caused by these items.

Respect must be given to all occupants in university buildings at all times. Specifically in regards to noise, running in the halls and the kicking of walls and doors. Appropriate behavior is expected. This is a university facility and there are other activities including classes and research happening at all times.

Other regulations may apply based on the facility reserved and will be explained upon the booking of these facilities.
