Rental Rates, Event Related Fees & Insurance Requirements
This overview lists the criteria we use to determine whether charges apply to conferences, meetings and events planned in the Campus Center. The Campus Center staff strives to apply these rates fairly to all events held within the facility. Our staff is available to answer any questions you may have about event related charges.
We use the following criteria to determine if fees apply:
The program, meeting or event is an initiative of, and was created/developed by UMass Boston for the sole benefit of its students, faculty and staff. Further, the program, meeting or event is for UMass Boston faculty, staff and/or students and is not open to the public or non-university guests. There is no external funding or partnership associated with the event.
The program, meeting or event is an initiative of UMass Boston, and was created/developed by UMass Boston and involves external partnership, funding or guests. The event is not primarily for the university community and is open to non-university guests/attendees (through advertisement or invitation). The event is supported by funds from outside the university (ex. outside sponsorship, admission fees, registration charges, fundraisers, ticket sales, etc.).
In order to obtain the University Rate: (1) UMass Boston representative must request the space (2) UMass Boston representative must serve as the primary contact/planner for all event-related details (3) All charges related to the event will be billed and covered by the UMass Boston department speed type.
