Terms & Conditions

Facilities Services has established Terms & Conditions (T&C) for its services to better align customer expectations with the services we provide and improve our operations so we can offer the best possible experience to our clients. Establishing T&C is a best practice in the service industry. Most clients will experience minimal to no financial impact.

The Facilities Service Center (FSC) also developed a process map for event requests, which illustrates how the terms and conditions affect the event request process. Download the Events Terms & Conditions FSC Process Flow.
