It is in the best interest of the University to designate one administrative unit to coordinate the scheduling of institutional facilities and other resources that are available for conferences and events. This approach limits overhead expenses and facilitates the efficient scheduling of designated space.
The Conference Center at SVSU is the administrative unit designated with this responsibility for non-academic space. The Conference Center at SVSU may schedule activities in available academic space after the course schedule has been approved by the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs. The Conference Center at SVSU may also schedule space in the Student Center subject to scheduling priorities established by the Student Life Center.
Meetings and other functions utilizing University facilities which are classified as University activities are exempt from paying room rental fees. A minimal fee ($20-$60), however, will be assessed if the activity requires significant room set-up.
Room rental fees will be assessed for the following event categories:
University-Sponsored Activities/Events for which no registration fee is charged.
University-sponsored activities or events are coordinated by University members in conjunction with an outside organization. Participants attending these events are University members, along with members of the external organization. Rental rates and service fees will be discounted 50% for conferences, workshops, meetings and camps and must be paid for by University funds.
Example: Dinner meeting with attendees who are University members and external community members for which no fee is charged.
University-Sponsored Activities/Events for which a registration fee is charged.
Rental rates and service fees will be discounted 50% for conferences, workshops, meetings and camps arranged by faculty, staff or students for which a registration fee is charged.
Example: Dinner function, charging a fee to attend.
