Price Adjustments
The College of Business reserves the right to adjust the quoted rental prices at its building until a reservation agreement has been completed. For events booked one year in advance, the sole catering vendor may adjust prices until a final event summary document has been approved. Such adjustments will not be more than 20% of the original quoted/contracted prices.

Payments

As consideration for the use of Howard L. Hawks Hall, all affiliates and non-university groups will need to submit payment in full 10 business days prior to scheduled event date. All other charges assessed for damage, repair, cleanup or other expenses shall be invoiced immediately after the scheduled event.

Cancellation and No Show

The College of Business has implemented a cancellation policy and no show policy for all groups reserving space. Failure to show for a meeting or event, hold rooms that are not used or cancel with short notice (see cancellation policy below) can create complications for college staff setting up rooms unnecessarily and also denies other groups the opportunity to utilize event rooms.

Cancellation - Single Meeting Rooms
Reservations involving a single room must be canceled by 12 p.m. the business day prior to the scheduled meeting. If the meeting or event falls on Sunday or Monday, the cancellation must be made by 12 p.m. on Friday. Failure to cancel a meeting will result in the charge of 50% of the non-university rate of the room. Cancellation notification must be submitted in writing to the building manager or events and welcome center coordinator.

Cancellation - Multiple Meeting Rooms
Reservations that require multiple rooms on the same date or multiple days must be canceled by 12 p.m., 10 business days prior to the event date. The entire reservation, or any rooms that will not be utilized, must be canceled 10 business days prior to the event date to avoid penalty. Failure to cancel any unneeded rooms, or the entire reservation, will result in the charge of 50% of the non-university rate for canceled/unused room. Cancellation notification must be submitted in writing to the building manager or events and welcome center coordinator.

No Show
Groups failing to show up or use all spaces for reservations with multiple spaces will be assessed a charge of 100% of the non-university rate for each room. Any RSO with a record of three no shows will no longer be allowed to make room reservations.

Interruption or Termination of Event
The College of Business reserves the right to cancel, interrupt or terminate any event in the interest of weather related emergency, public safety, noncompliance with university policies, or if the event can be viewed as inappropriate or not consistent with the mission of the college.
