Does My Rental Include Event Coordination Services?
The rental fee does not include any coordination services. Each event will have a trained staff member on site for the duration of the event to answer any facility related questions. However, as an educational foundation, we only offer space to rent and do not contract to provide setup, cleanup, or event coordination services. Additional coordination services must be arranged through an outside vendor.
