 Deposit Policy

A deposit of 50% of Facility Use Fees is required for each room reserved. All space reserved will not be guaranteed until the deposit is received. Refunds of entire deposit will be made for space cancelled 60 days in advance of event; a 50% refund will be made for space cancelled 30 days in advance of event.

During the academic year, no one group is allowed to reserve the entire Dreyfus University Center. Two large rooms and 2 small rooms will be kept open to other groups until two weeks prior to event. Any rooms not reserved by another group, can then be reserved for the large event.



 General Information- University Buildings

  • Snacks, coffee breaks, meals and other food service can be catered to meeting rooms, although most academic rooms have food restrictions. All food and beverages for group functions that are consumed in campus buildings, (with the exception of CPS Cafeteria, athletic concessions, and residence halls), must be provided by the University Dining Services, and arranged directly with them. 

  • If beer or other alcohol is desired at a meeting or event, alcohol approval must be granted by University Dining Services according to alcohol-use guidelines. This approval is required before University Food Service can serve any alcohol, and they are the sole server of catered alcohol anywhere on the UW-Stevens Point campus.

  • Student organizations wishing to sell food items on-campus must complete one of the following forms.
  • Any University department or student organization can reserve space for sales pur­poses, but must secure a sales regist­ration form from the Student Involvement and Employment Of­fice, as well as a waiver from Food Ser­vice if food or bever­age is in­volved.


    It is the sponsoring organization’s responsibility to notify the Campus Reservations Office whenever A/V or technology in academic classrooms will be used or will be needed a minimum of one week in advance of the program. Campus Reservation Office can advise which rooms have suitable A/V and technology and which rooms have no technology at all. COMPUTER-BASED TECHNOLOGY IN ROOMS IS ONLY ACCESSIBLE TO PERSONS WHO HAVE A VALID UW-Stevens Point NETWORK LOGON ID. PERSONS WITHOUT A VALID UW-Stevens Point NETWORK LOGON ARE SHOULD CONTACT THE INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY HELP DESK A MINIMUM OF ONE WEEK PRIOR TO THE DATE OF THE EVENT TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO OBTAIN A GUEST NETWORK ACCOUNT.

    There is no charge for the use of existing A/V and technology equipment in academic classrooms, however equipment usage policies vary by room. A/V and technology equipment such as TV/VCRs, overhead projectors, etc. is available for use without assistance in some academic classrooms. However, many rooms on campus have locked technology cabinets which may only be accessed by a UW-Stevens Point faculty member who is knowledgeable in the use of the technology or by hiring a technician from the Program Services Office. Only UW-Stevens Point faculty, staff, and Program Services technicians are allowed to check out keys to those cabinets and monitor the equipment’s usage. Faculty and UW-Stevens Point staff wanting to use the technology in rooms with locked cabinets must make that request through Campus & Reservations to be connected with either Information Technology support staff or a Program Services technician (depending on the room) in order to be trained on proper use of the equipment.​​
