FAQs

Is there a fee for using the rooms?
It doesn’t cost to use the meeting rooms; however, if the room is not returned to its standard setup, if there are damages, or if extraordinary cleanup must occur a minimum of $50 will be charged to cover it.

Can I serve food at my meetings?
Yes, but you must clean up when you are done. If you anticipate you will have a lot of trash, please notify us ahead of time and we’ll put an extra trash receptacle in the room. The Help Desk can also supply a vacuum cleaner if needed.

What if I want to move the furniture around?
It is okay to move furniture that is not fixed to the floor; however, you are responsible for returning the room to the standard set up. Standard set ups are posted in each room. Tables in Rooms D and E may not be moved.
