The first step to hosting an event is to receive permission from appropriate Director, Executive Director, Dean, or Vice President. Next, host must secure the facility by contacting the Media and Community Information Department. This must be done at least 30 days prior to the event.

When making a request, please indicate “college sponsored” or “off-campus user.” The forms are different and a small fee is charged for the “off-campus user.” If the event involves a for-profit organization under the “off campus user” paperwork, and a contract must be initiated and reviewed by the Purchasing Department for proper billing.

Once the paperwork is completed it should be returned to the Media & Community Information Department for further distribution. It is important for paperwork to be returned in a timely manner so that arrangements can be made with custodial for the scheduling of post event clean-up, maintenance for facility set-up, audiovisual for public address systems, and public information for event promotion.
