Requests for space are awarded first-come, first-served and handled in the order requested. It may take up to 4 business day for a confirmation which will include a cost estimate. As your event changes we ask that you keep us apprised so we can reserve equipment, schedule staff and revise your costs.
Fees are based on an 8 hour day, and your catering set up time is part of your reservation. Any events outside building hours require pre-approval and additional fees apply. You will be invoiced after your event. When paying by cash or check or credit card please add a 17.64% SUNY ADMIN fee. This Administrative fee is not accrued when paying by journal transfer or materials & service requisition. Invoices are due within 30 days of receipt.
Most meeting rooms have a self-serve walk up station, so if you do not request A/V support no fees will be incurred. Requested A/V support or additional equipment will incur minimal fees to offset our direct costs. An estimate will be provided at the time of your reservation request and throughout you planning process.
For safety reasons the Wang Center does not allow clients to bring their own A/V, with the exception of laptops and slide advancers (no projectors, amps, mics etc.)
Food is permitted in meeting rooms and lobbies only. Events with food incur a custodial fee. Campus Catering (CulinArt, Windows or Simons Café) do not require a food permit. Outside caterers will require a food permit. It is the responsibility of the group coordinator to secure and supply a copy to the facility.
Catering set up/breakdown times are considered part of your reservation. Caterers may not leave any equipment overnight all items must be picked up at the conclusion of the event or it will be thrown out.
The Wang Center does not have a catering kitchen, linens or dishes, silverware or plastic ware. All should be provided by your caterer.
The Wang Center does not permit attaching anything to the walls, doors, or floors. Easels and display boards can be provided upon request. Helium balloons and open flames are not permitted. Should your event require banners or posters to be hung, this must be pre-arranged with a member of the Wang Staff.
The Wang Center staffs based on events in the building and require a 5-business day cancellation in writing to Wangreservations@stonybrook.edu. Less than 5 business days or a no show results in a $50 cancellation fee.
