  • In order to maximize availability, tents may only be reserved once-per-week by student clubs or departments for no longer than a three-hour period (including set up and break down times).
  • The reservation is not final until you receive email confirmation from the Center for Student Engagement and it appears on the master tent schedule. 
  • Please allow at least 15 minutes before and after reservation times to allow for adequate cleaning and transition time.
  • Tent reservations are subject to change due to adjustments in schedules, at the discretion of the Center for Student Engagement.
  • During the period of time that reservations aren’t reserved, tents are open for individual use on a first come-first served basis.

Guidelines

  • Groups that have a confirmed reservation on the tent schedule have sole priority for use of that tent. During times when there are no reservations, tents may be used for informal gatherings on a first-come, first-served basis.  Please be sure to check the master tent schedule before utilizing an available tent. 
  • The individual who submitted the reservation is responsible for ensuring appropriate use of the tent during the reservation time, including all health and safety protocols. 
  • Students/departments are welcome to utilize the table and chairs inside the tent and set them up according to their needs. No additional tables or chairs are available to be set up in these tents. If additional tables are required, please contact the Center for Student Engagement to review available options.
  • Student organizations and departments are responsible for their own set up and break down of the tent set up. The table and all chairs should be wiped down before and after use. All chairs should be stacked following the end of an event.
  • Tables, chairs, signage, cleaning supplies, and other items provided with the tent may not be removed.

Health and Safety Protocols 

  • Physical distancing must be maintained between all persons at all times. Tent gatherings where a 6-foot distance cannot be maintained between all persons are not permitted. 
  • Face coverings must be worn at all times while utilizing tents, with the exception of when eating or drinking (physical distancing must be maintained while eating). 
  • Individuals must disinfect any surfaces which they touch (tables, chairs, etc.) before and after use. Cleaning supplies will be provided at each tent.
