Special Events

Many university related activities occurring on campus grounds or within academic buildings are considered special in terms of the support required to ensure both a safe and successful event. University Facilities coordinates with faculty and staff to assist with special events in the following ways:

  • Locating underground utility lines and adjusting irrigation systems
  • Providing electrical hook-up, sound system, and an on-site electrician
  • Providing barricades for road closures
  • Rental of ferns and/or palm trees for indoor events
  • Event signage/banner placement
  • Trash/Recycling collection

We ask that you give us at least two (2) weeks advance notice for any event requiring support so that we are able to provide the best possible service for your function. Less than two (2) weeks notice may cause delayed or incomplete service.
