This policy outlines all guidelines and expectations associated with all non-academic events. We are able to set up a virtual meeting if you are not able to visit the BCSC before your event.

Again, you have 3 days after we send your reservation confirmation to email us copies of your confirmation forms from Grounds Maintenance and Stanford Recycling. 
  3. Important: Failure to comply with our social / party policy and cleaning standards will result in loss of reservation and could lead to your organization or department being charged a $100 service fee. Non-compliance will also revoke your ability to access or reserve the BCSC community room, lounge and deck for the remainder of the academic year. Click now to review our social / party policy.
