Technology and Support Fee Structure

There will be no charge for library technical assistance on how to use the library hardware and software or for the setup and testing of instructor/presenter station software files, when prescheduled and completed at least 24 hours in advance of the event. All categories of users are subject to the following fees if a University Library Client Support Analyst is requested to provide consulting, troubleshooting assistance, or other special services (such as power strips, guest wireless access setup, special software installations, etc) on the day of the event:

  • $100 per hour - Client Support Services

Always schedule a software setup and run-through test well in advance of your event to waive the fee and please allow us two to three weeks to test any presentation software and files that you are planning to use on the instructor’s/presenter’s station for possible incompatibilities with our hardware and software. The library is not responsible for ensuring special software and hardware which is brought in by the user will work on our technology. The library is also not responsible for ensuring analyst availability, so please schedule well in advance of your event.

The library will not be responsible for loading special software on student workstations in our computer classrooms or ensuring it works properly. If you would like to load special software outside of the standard library software onto classroom student stations, you are responsible for installing your software and then rebuilding the stations back to a standard library classroom configuration after your event. If you do not return the stations back to a standard library classroom configuration after your event, you may be charged a classroom reconfiguration fee of $100.

Additional Client Support Team Services include setup of video recording and/or web stream of events within the Lilly Auditorium. Fees for this special service are set at $100 per event.

All rooms should be left in the same conditions in which they were set by the scheduled end time of each event. This includes cleanliness of tables, chairs, and floors, and the room furniture setup. A fee of $100/hour will be charged for any University Library staff time required to clean the room or return it to its original configuration.

The University Library building does not open until 7:30 a.m. Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. on Saturday and Noon on Sunday.  Rooms may not be accessed until 30 minutes after the building opens.

General Policies and Facility Usage Guidelines

A.  University Library rooms close at 11:00pm on Sunday – Thursday, 8:00pm on Fridays, and at 5:00pm on Saturdays during Fall & Spring. During summer, rooms close at 8:30 p.m. Monday - Friday and 5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.  All events are expected to end with the room vacated and returned to original configuration by the reservation end time. If events run past the event end time or UL room closing time, fees will be incurred. Please see our fee structure for Client Support Services.

B.  Room reservation requests must be received at least two (weekday) business days in advance of the requested event.

C.  Due to high demand, UL rooms may not be reserved for recurring events. A department, group or organization may only reserve a room twice a month per reservation. During the summer semesters, a department, group or organization may reserve a room three times a month per reservation. The 2115 rooms were gifted to the University Library as part of our Philanthropic Studies Library. Therefore, only courses and community events relating to philanthropic studies and outreach are permitted to have recurring events in these spaces.

D.  UL computer classrooms (UL1130 and UL0106) will be restricted to UL faculty usage only for the first six weeks at the start of each semester. For non-UL faculty and staff wishing to make a reservation for a UL Computer Classroom after the first six weeks of the semester, please contact our UL Event Coordinator at ulems@iupui.edu or 278-2084, as calendar/reservation access is limited online for these spaces.

E.  A contact person must be on site for each event. University affiliates must have a valid userid in our Event Management System to make a room reservation at UL. Only current IUPUI Student Organization Presidents and two approved officer delegates may make reservations on behalf of their student organization.

F.  Sponsoring organizations and the individual completing the request form are responsible for all charges, fees and any damage resulting from anyone attending the event. The sponsoring organization or individual will be assessed the full replacement costs for any damaged furniture, audio-visual technology, paneling, and carpeting/flooring.

G.  Either an IUPUI internal billing account number or a 50% deposit payment by check or money order is required for all reservations with billable charges. The account number or deposit payment is due at least two (2) business days prior to the event or the event will be cancelled.

All invoices must be paid within 30 days. Organizations with UL fees/bills not paid in full within 30 days risk having upcoming events cancelled, and new event reservation requests denied until their bill is paid in full.

If the event is cancelled after the event billing is already paid: written notice must be received by UL Event Coordinators a minimum of one (1) business day prior to the
event. Once notice is received, all monies will be refunded minus a $25 administrative processing fee.

Applicable Indiana sales tax will be added to all billing. Credit card processing fees will be included in the bill, if a credit card is used for payment.

H.  To maximize the use of space, all organizations are expected to honor all reservations.

Organizations that fail to use reserved space may be charged a $25 cancellation fee. To avoid a cancellation fee for room and event spaces, written notice should be sent to the UL Event Coordinators (ulems@iupui.edu) a minimum of one (1) business day prior to the event.

Organizations hosting events cancelled at the last minute due to inclement weather, national disaster and/or national emergency will not be charged a cancellation fee.

Food Service Agreements have separate cancellation requirements.

Repeated failure to appear on time or at all (no-shows) for reservations may result in denial of current/future room reservations.

Food service is the responsibility of the user, including the monitoring of food delivery, pickup and clean up of the space used. A campus contract requires that catering for all events held in the library be provided by Chartwells Catering Service (274-7566). Users are responsible for ensuring the prompt removal of food service. Fees will be charged if the room is not left in its original condition, or is not reset to its original configuration. Please see the fee structure for Client Support Services.
