3. University Departmental and Student Organizational Requirements

As the third priority, University Departments and Student Organizations may schedule available buildings and/or facilities for University events, meetings or gatherings.

4. Scheduling Requests External to the University

As the fourth priority, St. Bonaventure University permits approved organizations and/or programing, external to the University, to schedule facilities when:

                     External organizations meet the St. Bonaventure University Standards as noted in the St. Bonaventure University Mission Statement.

                     That external scheduling, if approved, does not interfere with the daily operation of the University.

Fees and Rental Charges for external scheduling requests will be determined by the University consistent with University Policy.

With the exception of the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts, all scheduling of buildings and/or facilities is a function of the Coordinator of Special Events and Summer Programming. For further details contact the Office of Student Life, Reilly Center.
