Boston Campus Events

Notice: Please provide Facilities Services at least two weeks’ notice prior to your scheduled event.  All last minute requests (within 48 hours of the event start time) are subject to a late fee of $50.

Facilities Services will arrange furniture or specialty item rental and services if the space you are reserving is not already equipped with sufficient tables and chairs. Rentals can be arranged through Facilities Services with one-month prior notice. There will be a charge for all rentals and outside vendor services.

If food and beverage will be served, it is necessary to arrange for custodial clean-up.
