posted by TERESA BROWN on 1/15/14   

As of January 15, 2014, the Welcome Center’s Presentation Hall, two small conference rooms, and the digital lounge will be available for reservations after operating hours through the online Campus Event Management System (CEMS). We hope this new facility will help to open more on-campus space options for evening meetings and events. 

  • Welcome Center is available for event reservations Monday through Friday after 5pm and on weekends after 3pm.
  • Reservations for the full facility and Presentation Hall will be accepted 13 months out from the event date. Reservations for the Digital Lounge and meeting rooms 1 & 2 will be accepted three months out from the event date.
  • Capacities and rates can be viewed on the following pages.

CES Coordination Fees

posted by ANA KITCHEN on 9/18/13 - last edited by ANA KITCHEN on 9/26/13   

A coordination fee may be assessed for changes to reservations that require multiple room and date changes. A $40 coordination fee will apply to single use reservation changes. For example, moving an event from one location to another, or adjusting the date. A $80 coordination fee will apply to multiple use reservation changes. For example, reservations that have multiple rooms attached to a single permit.  The coordination fee will cover our time to contact the facility manger to obtain approval, change the reservation, update the permit, adjust the billing, and issue the revised permit.

Fees will not be assessed due to the following:

·         Adjusting times is free for single facility use reservations

·         Banner Bumped reservations

·         Single touch changes for single facility use reservations

Any exception to the scheduling parameter will incur a coordination fee. For example, booking a reservation in general assignment space before 6pm on a weekday. Please note the policy currently in place for general assignment classrooms is enforced by the Office of the Registrar. A $40 coordination fee may apply for all paper forms, “Other Building/Other Room”, or reservation requests that are outside the pre-approved scheduling parameters. Clients may also opt to cancel the reservation, and create a new request to avert coordination fees. Please note that the reservation fee is non-refundable.
