Why? Why is a new facility use policy needed? And why a new Application for Use of Facilities form? Growth is a constant at MTSU. Over the last 20 years, we’ve witness unmatched growth in students, staff, and facilities. This growth has placed many demands on MTSU personnel as everyone attempts to balance the usage of available space between academic needs, student activities, and the constant requests for special event space. The purpose of this policy is to establish rules and regulations for more efficient use of University-owned or leased facilities. This includes academic buildings, Union facilities, athletic facilities, and outdoor areas. The scope of this policy applies to all faculty, staff, students, guests, and visitors to Middle Tennessee State University.
User Definitions University Academic Activities are those activities directly related to the instructional mission of the University; such as: University academic credit bearing classes, course related events resulting from academic course work, such as research, outside study, tutoring, and field testing. Faculty departmental meetings are also included in this category. EXAMPLE 1: If a UNIV 1010 class needs to use a different academic space than already assigned. Moving because HVAC system in BAS is out, so class moves to MASS COMM. Contact Scheduling Center to be assigned a different space. Staff meetings for departments may also be scheduled in academic space by the Scheduling Center. EXAMPLE 2: If a UNIV 1010 class wants to use a non-academic space for part of the class then they must contact that facility scheduler/event coordinator: UNIV 1010 wants to use Rec Center for a part of the learning experience. Forms may be required for use of this type of space. A PSY 1030 class wants to utilize the KUC Theater for research. Forms are required for use of this type of space.
User Definitions University Sponsored Events are those activities directly related to the life of the campus community beyond the classroom; such as: athletics, recreation, student programming activities, and academic camps/conferences/workshops. There are two sub-categories for such an event. 1. Official University Events: Official University Events are those programs that are scheduled or sponsored by faculty, staff, administrative offices and departments that are planned primarily for members of the University community. Guests and alumni may attend these programs. 2. Student Events: Student Events are those programs, activities and services that are scheduled or sponsored by student clubs or organizations that are officially recognized by the University and planned primarily for members of the campus community. Members of the community, guests and alumni may attend these programs. EXAMPLE 1: Official University Events Seigenthaler Chair events, Honors Lecture Series, Departmental lectures. Must contact appropriate facility scheduler for use of space. Facility form required. EXAMPLE 2: Student Events MTSU officially recognized student organizations. Student org is hosting a lecture, meeting, or social event. Must contact appropriate facility scheduler for use of space. Facility form required.
User Definitions University Related Events match the same criteria as a University Sponsored Event, but also include a charge for registration and/or admission. University Co-Sponsored Events are academic programs, conferences and/or meetings involving two entities: a University school, academic department, administrative unit or student organization and an outside organization such as a professional association in which the University holds membership or maintains a relationship that directly benefits the University community. EXAMPLE 1: University Related Events University Department plans and hosts a conference that requires a registration or admission fee. Must contact appropriate facility scheduler for use of space. Facility form required. EXAMPLE 2: University Co-Sponsored Events The Agribusiness Department pairs up with the local 4-H organization and hosts a competition. Chemistry Department pairs up with “Expanding Your Horizons.” Must contact appropriate facility scheduler for use of space. Facility form required.
User Definitions The following conditions must be met for all Sponsored, Related and Co- Sponsored events: 1.The university department/organization is responsible for all communication including reservation and event arrangements with the venue scheduling staff. EXAMPLE: The Agribusiness Department must contact the event scheduler for all communications, not the 4-H group. 2. A university department/organization representative must be present and actively participate with the event. EXAMPLE: The Kappa Delta’s must actively participate when the Girls Scouts sell cookies on campus. The Ag. Department representative must be present and is the event contact. 3. The university department/organization is responsible for all charges related to the event. EXAMPLE: When charges are incurred to produce a specific event, a departmental account/index number is required.
User Definitions Non-University/ External Events are those programs and activities organized by any person, business or community group not encompassed in the organizational structure of the University. Only Non-academic buildings can be reserved for Non-University/External Events. Non-University/External groups can reserve space up to four (4) times per semester. This includes non-profit organizations. EXAMPLE: World Outreach Church rents Murphy Center for Easter weekend events.
User Fees Definitions Support Services Fees (Direct Costs): Any cost that is incurred as a direct result of the event occupying the facility. These fees include but are not limited to Security, Custodial, Food Services, Building Attendant, Technical Attendant and Production Services. Services must recoup their cost. Services are not making profits. User Fee (Facility Use): Room occupancy fee Administrative Fee: University Coordinator’s time
User Fee Structure University Academic Activities: No charges (except as noted below) EXAMPLE: No charge – UNIV 1010 moves to a different academic space. Rec Center must charge for outdoor coordinator’s expertise. University Sponsored Events: 1. Official University: Support Services Fees (Direct Costs), Applicable 2. Student: Support Services Fees (Direct Costs), Applicable EXAMPLE: Department or approved student organization has a large conference and additional services are needed. On Friday and Saturday in BAS/300+ people=custodial needs and technical assistance, etc. Must be paid with a MTSU account/index number. University Related Events: 1. Official University: Support Services Fees (Direct Costs), Applicable Administrative Fees. 2. Student: Support Services Fees (Direct Costs), Applicable Administrative Fees. EXAMPLE: Same as above and additional Administrative Fees are applicable University Co-Sponsored Events: 1. Support Services Fees (Direct Costs) 2. Administrative Fees 3. Proof of Liability Insurance Required EXAMPLE: The Ag. Department must use an account/index number to pay all costs. The 4H outside organization must provide a $1 million dollar liability insurance policy.
User Fee Structure Non-University/External Events: 1. User Fees 2. Support Services Fees (Direct Costs) 3. Administrative Fees 4. Proof of Liability Insurance Required 5. Contract Required EXAMPLE: World Outreach Church pays Murphy Center’s User Fees and also signs a contract. University fees will be based on the type of space, the length of usage, and the competitive market rates for comparable square footage. Administrative fees follow the same logic for justification.
