Reservation and Deposit Policies

Rooms may be reserved online or at the Bernhard Center office.

Registered Student Organizations may use rooms at the Bernhard Center to conduct regular weekly business meetings at no charge, with the exception of the following: ballroom use; concerts; when a room is used for selling goods, they may not duplicate or compete with items sold by merchants in the Bernhard Center; fundraising events; catered events.

The West Suite can be divided into three smaller rooms. The East Ballroom can be divided into two large rooms.

All RSOs must have fund and cost center numbers issued by Student Activities and Leadership Programs to charge for the use of the Bernhard Center facilities (where applicable) or a cash deposit will be required upon booking of an activity. A service agreement for all RSOs must be completed prior to confirmation of facility use that requires rental or fees charged.

If funds are not available in the RSO account, the individual initiating the charge will be held financially responsible.

Due to the high demand by RSOs, meeting rooms may be occupied for no more than three hours. Second turn around rooms are set up for the first meeting group and will be set "as is" for the next group using the room.

If the Bernhard Center is at capacity, meeting rooms are available in Sangren or Knauss Halls for RSOs.

Notify the Bernhard Center office for cancellations or changes to room use.

Temporary holds on rooms

A temporary hold may be requested for a given space. However, such holds will be subject to the following stipulations:

  1. A firm reservation will not be made until a Bernhard Center agreement form (available at the Main Office) has been signed and the appropriate deposit made.
  2. Temporary holds must be converted to confirmed reservations within 30 calendar days or the hold will be canceled.
