Student Event Guidelines


Organizations that need to make any changes to an event, must communicate this information to the Brower Student Center Assistant Managers no later than a week prior to the event date. Changes not communicated within this time frame are not guaranteed.



Organizations that need to cancel an event, must communicate this information at least a week prior to the event. Organizations who fail to communicate an event cancellation within this period may still be held responsible for any applicable fees associated with the event. Term Assignment cancellations should be communicated within 24 hours.



Student organizations are responsible and liable for the use, care, and condition of any venue, and/or equipment reserved for their events. Organizations are required to leave all venues and/or equipment that they have used for their events in satisfactory condition. This includes but is not limited to removing all decorations and/or trash related to the event, and returning any moved furniture to its original setting. Failure to do so may result in the revocation of scheduling privileges as determined by the Student Activities Office.

Equipment Use in Academic Classrooms – Keys to equipment cabinets in “smart” classrooms or other campus venues can be obtained in Green Hall, Room 006. The advisor of the student organization may have to sign this key out on behalf of the student group. Keys must be obtained prior to the event date, during normal business hours.


Equipment Use in the Brower Student Center or Decker Social Space – If equipment is needed for an event taking place in the Student Center, organizations must request and reserve all desired equipment prior to the event date.
