|Scheduling Your Event
||Pricing & Billing
The first step in planning your event is to arrange
for an appropriate location. All facility usage is reserved by calling
(505) 925-8565, Monday through Friday between 8:30 AM and 2:00 PM.
Room reservations should be done well in advance
as space on campus is in high demand. We recommend booking your event
as early as possible due to current construction.
Information which you will need to provide at the
time of your reservations includes: the estimated attendance, anticipated
style of service required (buffet or served), audiovisual equipment needs
(podium, microphone, etc.), a brief agenda of your event (so we can plan
set up and service times) and any other special requirements.
A guaranteed number of persons attending your event
is required at least 3 business days prior to the event date. This enables
us to have the appropriate quantities of food, beverages, and servers
to meet the needs of your guests. This is the minimum number for which
you will be billed. If your actual number count should be larger than
your guarantee, you will be billed for the number in attendance.
The time needed for served meals is very dependent
on the number of uses reserved, and the number of guests in attendance.
We are happy to help you determine the appropriate amount of time for
your type of service when you are planning your menu.
If your event includes a program (brief or long)
please advise us on your requirements for continued beverage service and/or
clearing of dishes during the program. Extended programs often increase
labor costs when clearing is delayed.
We require a minimum of FIVE (5) Business
days notice if you need to cancel your event. If you are unable to cancel
in this time frame and product costs have been incurred, you will be billed
for these items. Please call 925-8565 directly for facility usage cancellations.
To provide the lowest possible price to our campus
departments menu selections and services are billed at cost plus an overhead
fee. When requested we will be happy to provide you with a price estimate.
To expedite our ability to best meet your needs,
we recommend you provide us with an idea of your budget parameters during
our first discussion. Last minute changes, a drop in your guaranteed
count, special room requests; etc. can also affect your final price. You
may, however, choose from our preset menus and pricing if your prefer.
While we will happy to provide you with a general
price estimate for planning purposes, we caution that costs estimated
more than 30 days in advance of your event are often subject to change.
We suggest that final menu selections be made no more than 30 days in
advance, whenever possible.
Additional charges may apply in the following situations:
- If complicated or extensive service set-ups are
- When clean up following an event requires extra-ordinary
- When additional staff is requested which exceed
our normal staffing levels.
- If service needs require equipment rental.
- When events start more than 15 minutes late or
run later than the defined period of service.
- If the location of an event is labor intensive
for set up and/or service.
A list of recommended menu selections and suggested
menu combinations is available for your convenience. However, with adequate
time, we will be happy to create a specialized menu, unique to your group
and your event. We will do our best to honor any special requests.

We regret that excess perishable food and beverage,
not consumed during an event, can not be taken from the site by the customer
or their guests, due to health and food safety considerations.
Items purchased for pick-up or self-service food
items are the property of the customer and cannot be returned for credit.
The Valencia Campus takes many precautions
to safeguard the personal property of our employees, clients and guests.
However, we are not responsible for damages to belongings, or items left
during or following a function by the customer or their guests. It is recommended
that the host of the event quickly review the areas in use prior to leaving
the event. If any items are found by campus employees, all efforts will
be made to contact the host of the event to schedule pick up.
