The Fine Print

Department Sponsorship of Third-Party Use of Rec Center Facility Space

A UAS department may sponsor an individual or group’s facility use by paying the reservation fees with departmental funds. Eligibility for space reservation is determined by the status of the third-party sponsored by the department and their relationship to the University. Department sponsorship requires approval from the department’s representative on the Space Utilization Committee.
