3. A representative of the University will contact the individual whose name has been provided to the Conference and Event Services Office. It is the sponsor's responsibility to inform participants of closing/cancellation information.
If the University needs to be evacuated or is closed with classes canceled, all events are canceled.
If the University is open with canceled classes, or if there is a delay in opening or closing the University, events may or may not still occur dependent upon several factors. The University reserves the right to determine the cancellation of any scheduled events.
If the University is open and hosting events but you, as the event sponsor, wish to cancel an event because of inclement weather, you may do so within the guidelines stipulated in your contract.
Please be advised that if your event involves food service and your cancellation is not received in the timeframe as outlined in the contract, you will be held responsible for the associated costs. If the University cancels due to inclement weather, you will not be held responsible for the costs.
