(May 18, 2011)--The University Center (UC) has published its revised fee, labor and resource rates for the 2011-2012 academic year. The rates will go into effect Sept. 1 and can be viewed in the online UC Handbook of Operating Procedures.
The UC Advisory Council (UCAC) approved fees unanimously. Before fee approval, UC staff educated the UCAC regarding current fees and provided fee benchmark comparisons. Benchmark fees were gathered from event facilities and service providers in the San Antonio community as well as university center facilities around the nation that are similar to the UC.
"These fees allow us to be wise stewards of our student-generated funds and ensure we are able to provide a wide range of services for years to come," said UC Director Lowa Mwilambwe.
The UCAC voting members are elected, appointed or selected from student organizations and the general student body through an application process. Two faculty members appointed by President Ricardo Romo also have voting privileges.

There are some fee increases in certain areas. They were put in place after analyzing the use of facility resources and considering wear, tear and eventual replacement of technology that is increasingly expensive. Fees are subject to change.
