Table Space, Vending, Marketing or Promotion
Non-university vendors are permitted to set-up a table or a display-area for sales, marketing or promotional services. Vending is defined as the sale of products or services by a non-university person or organization.
Prohibited Vendors and Vending Products
Please note the sale or promotion of some products is prohibited. Prohibited products include, but are not limited to; travel services, insurance products, banking or financial services, promotional products, credit cards, utilities, mortgages or other loans, and/or subscriptions to any product or service. In addition, the sale of items already provided by an existing campus vendor, such as books, food, etc. will require special approval. The University of Massachusetts Boston does not endorse or approve the misrepresentation of trademarks, copyrights or advertising by vendors. Any materials distributed should adhere to common sense guidelines of decency and appropriateness for our diverse population.
Obtaining Space in the Campus Center
To obtain space, the vendor must complete a Table Space Request and Agreement Form. Once you have completed the form, please contact the Campus Center to discuss the details of your reservation. Once both parties have agreed upon the date(s) of your stay, please fax or mail your Table Space Request and Agreement Form to the Campus Center. Once we receive your form, we will issue you a Space Confirmation. Vendors are placed in a heavily trafficked area of the Campus Center. Except as part of a scheduled ‘vendor fair’ only two vendors per space are allowed per day.
The daily fee is $200.00 for a 12’ x 6’ space with two 6’ ft tables and two chairs provided by UMass Boston. Multiple bookings during the same semester qualify for the following discounts: 2 bookings - $175 each, 3 bookings or more bookings - $133 each (multiple bookings must be booked at the same time to receive the multi-day discount). Requests for additional resources and services such as easels, coat racks, tables, and space may increase the cost for each reservation.
Payment is required on or before the date of your event. If you do not pay for space prior to your event date, you will be asked to pay before you depart the venue. Payment is accepted via cash, check or credit card (MC, VISA, AMEX).
Vendors may unload their items at the Campus Center Loading Dock. Cars may be parked in front of bay #1 against the curb and enter the Campus Center via the pedestrian ramp. Contact the Building Manager on duty if you need access to the freight elevator. Parking is by permit only. The unloading permit is limited to 30 minutes. Once you have unloaded your items, please park your vehicle at one of the designated lots. Cars parked longer than 30 minutes near the Campus Center Loading Dock will be ticketed and/or towed.
