Sponsored Events and Fronting


Indirect sponsorship of events, or fronting, is not permitted. This means that a registered student organization or university department cannot schedule a room for an outside organization’s sole use.

Sponsorship is permitted with an outside organization if the university department or student organization is responsible for the event planning process, event production the day of the event, and all charges related to the event. A member of the sponsoring organization must be present at the event.

Events sponsored by a registered student organization or university department discovered to be fronts for any entity will be adjusted to the appropriate facility rental rate. The group will have all reservation privileges (including existing and future reservations) suspended for a 6-month (consecutive) period, not including summer or break periods.
