    I understand that a non-refundable scheduling fee of $100 will be assessed upon approval of my event.
    I understand that any changes to the date or time of my event must be made no later than 1 month prior to my event. Changes are subject to availability and staffing and may incur additional fees. Events cancelled within one month of the event date will incur charges.
    I understand that no drugs may be used in the Ford Center. No events may use open flame. Any damage made to the building, furniture, equipment, table linens, etc. will be the responsibility of the sponsoring organization with additional charges added as needed. Caterers are to load-in through the rear loading dock and are responsible for their own equipment. Though we maintain a lost and found in the administrative office, the Ford Center is not responsible for lost or stolen items. The sponsoring organization is responsible for removing their items, decorations, etc. after the event. Cleaning charges as assessed by UM Facilities Management will apply to all events.
    I understand that it is my responsibility to contact Parking and Transportation Services to arrange parking spaces and reserved parking areas for my event. The Ford Center does not provide or distribute parking passes for events.
    I understand that my event is NOT approved until I receive official email confirmation. We cannot hold dates for events, although we are happy to provide you with currently available dates upon request. These are subject to change, however.
