    It is HIGHLY encouraged that all reservations be made via the online reservation system however, requests may be made via phone, email or walk-in. Non-online methods of requests will require clients to review, sign and return Reservation Terms & Conditions BEFORE the request will be reviewed which may add additional time to the reservation process. These steps can be completed quickly and electronically through the online reservation system.

    Reservation Changes

    Changes, including adding equipment or services, may be made to your reservation through the online reservation system up to five (5) business days prior to the reservation start time. Any changes made after this time may not be accommodated.

    The Hill Student Center reserves the right to change/alter reservations in an effort to maximize usage of space and accommodate as many reservation requests as possible. Reservations may be altered or canceled due to unexpected circumstances including, but not limited to, the following: utility interruptions, construction/renovation, emergency events, severe weather, and threats of imminent danger. Should a reservation be altered/canceled due to an unexpected circumstance every effort will be made to reschedule or accommodate whenever possible.

    Access to Space

    The reserving party will be granted access to the space NO SOONER than 15 minutes prior to the reservation start time. It is the responsibility of the reserving party to ensure the room has been reserved for the full duration in which access to the space is needed. Often additional time is necessary for decorating, event preparation, placing supplies/equipment inside the space, etc. Items are only allowed to be placed in the space during the time in which the room is reserved.

    Hill Student Center reserves the right to add additional time (paid at the hourly rate) to any reservation. Time may be added to accommodate client requests for early access to the space, if the event exceeds the reservation time or if the reserving party has not completely vacated the space by the end of the originally requested time.

    Fronting

    University departments and student organizations that are in good standing may invite speakers to an event but shall not use privileges to utilize space, resources and services for a non-university group or to mis-represent their group type to avoid charges (known as fronting).

The reserving group responsible for fronting may be subject to loss of reservation privileges.

    Cancellations, No Shows, Late Arrivals
