Ballrooms:
There is a rental fee for ballrooms and larger rooms where setup is required. All fees are due and payable within 30 days of the event. Please refer to our list of available Student Union rooms and charges.

Will my reservation be confirmed?

Many times there are waiting lists for organizations needing space. To be most effective in coordinating space availability, it is important that groups choosing not to use their scheduled room notify the Event Services office so we may reassign the space. The Event Services office will confirm requested reservations by fax, telephone, mail, or email. The reserving group’s faculty advisor or president will be required to sign the room confirmation agreeing to the policies and procedures of the Arizona Student Unions and return the signed confirmation to the Event Services office within (2) days of receipt. Catered meals will receive a confirmation when the menu for the event has been submitted to the Event Services office.

What if I need to cancel my reservation?

Five (5) working day's notice is required to cancel a general meeting room reservation in the Student Union Memorial Center to avoid penalties on future room use. Groups who cancel their reservation with less than 5 working days before the event will be given only one (1) late cancellation without penalty. The second time a group fails to give sufficient notice to cancel a space, their privilege to reserve rooms in the Student Union Memorial Center will be forfeited for the remainder of the semester.
