Q1: There are no spaces available for the date and time that I need. What should I do?
A1: Think creatively about using a different space. Click here for help on how to check the event calendar for availability. If you need theater style seating, could a classroom or event venue with fixed theater seating be used instead of requiring a room to be set up?
Remember, academic classrooms are managed by the Registrar’s Office and you can view availability (must use an on-campus internet connection) at: pastra.mines.edu.
Q2: How do I know if I’ll be charged a rental fee for my event?
A2: If less than 50% of attendees will be Mines faculty, staff or students, then a room rental charge will apply.
Q3: How come I have technical support and equipment fees at the Green Center but not at other facilities?
A3: The Green Center is a self-funded operation and therefore has to cover its “hard costs” such as labor and equipment.
Q4: An external entity is paying the bill for the event, is a contract needed?
A4: Yes, the non-Mines entity will need to sign a Facilities Use Agreement. Please contact the scheduling office directly rather than submit an event request form at events.mines.edu
