As an auxiliary enterprise on campus, the University Center (UC) is responsible for maintaining the operation, cleanliness and upkeep of the facility. Students are assessed a University Center fee that is used to care for these basic needs. This fee is not sufficient to cover all expenses associated with the execution of events such excessive labor, operating after building hours, or usage by university departments and external parties.
The UC is primarily funded through student fees and self-generated funds. The facility is available at NO charge to recognized student organizations and university departments when the sponsoring group is not collecting money for the event.
Charges will apply for special setups, equipment on the UC Paseo, an event charging admission, or an event occurring outside of normal operating hours.
Damage to the facility, furnishings or other equipment, whether accidental or intentional, will not be tolerated and may result in related charges. Events which require excessive housekeeping will result in fees billed to the event sponsoring group.
Invoices must be paid within 30 days of the receipt of invoice. Organizations that do not pay in a timely manner lose the right to schedule university space and their future events will be cancelled until accounts are current.
Fees are reviewed annually and approved by the University Center Advisory Council—a student led committee made up of elected and appointed student representatives from across the campus. Two faculty members appointed by the University President also serve on the committee.
UC fees are listed on the UC Resource, Labor and Facility Fee Schedule.
