Event Support

Facilities Services provides event support services before, during, and after your event to ensure the space is clean, safe, and inviting.  All event support requests must be submitted to Facilities Services using the Event Support option in the Customer Request Portal a minimum of two weeks prior to the start of the event.   Requests must include all event information including event name, expected attendance, diagrams, on site contact, etc.

Consider the following questions when planning for your event:

  1. Will clean-up be needed?
  2. Will restroom support be needed?
  3. Will signs be needed?
  4. Will power be needed?  If so, what are the power requirements?
  5. Will extra trash/recycle receptacles be needed?
  6. Will water be needed?
  7. Is setup and/or breakdown required?
  8. Will irrigation need to be turned off?
  9. Will on site, stand-by service be needed?
  10. Is this for a Recognized Student Organization?
