Facilities provides a wide range of services to ensure you have a successful event. We are the heavy lifters that provide venue set up and tear down. We also provide custodial services, plants, and trade support. Please submit your Event Support request at least 14 calendar days prior to the event to ensure adequate staffing and equipment are available. Event Support is a Premium Service and billed to the requesting department or student organization.

    Event Staffing Guidelines:

    All events require appropriate staffing to ensure the health and safety of the participants, to include monitoring of restrooms and cleanup of the venue. Work Order time billed to the event sponsor includes set-up and make-ready time to return the room to its original condition.

    Housekeeping support is required when food and/or beverage are provided and when more than one room is used. Charges are for Facilities personnel, services and equipment and do not include non-Facilities charges, such as food services, AV equipment, etc. Special arrangements are required for all events with more than 500 attendees.

    For additional information or assistance, please contact the Facilities Service Center at or 458-4262.
