Please also note that:
If you are planning an event on campus that requires audio or visual technology, you will be asked to describe your needs when you make your reservation with the office of Event Services. If additional details or explanations are required, the Audio Visual Manager will follow up with the event contact listed on the reservation. Reservations that simply say "TBD" will not be honored.
Events that require large scale audio or video systems or are located outdoors [e.g. Concerts, Movie Nights etc.] will need to be submitted 16 business days before your event and have been approved by the Audio Visual Services Manager. This is to ensure that we have the equipment and personnel available to ensure the success of your event. Events submitted less than 14 business days prior to the event will be denied.
Approval or denial of an event is based on, but not limited to, timely submission of resource requests, staffing availability, proper equipment availability, and weather conditions.
Please note that:
