At the time of booking, your event will be added to the online calendar. It will be listed as a private event with the full rental hours, unless you let us know the event is open to the public. Public events list additional event information and only show the public hours for the event on the web calendar.

  8. On the day of your event you will be met at the building by one of our Event Coordinators or Building Supervisors. They are here to help your event go smoothly without interfering in the actual event. They are not to be the exclusive set-up people for events, but they are happy to help you with layouts and getting out tables and chairs. They will also help get the mics and sound systems running and the projector and screen set up, if needed. Following your event, they will be on hand to help your group break everything down and to get the room back to neutral.
