An estimate will be prepared. Charges in addition to those in the estimate are variable and can include charges from Professional Development & Conferencing Services (PDSC), which will be passed on directly; any non-IP connectivity charges; long distance phone charges for initial contact and any troubleshooting. Charges from the far site will be the direct responsibility of the videoconferencing party.

These services must be discussed with the Concerts and Facilities Coordinator prior to the booking of the recording session.
Note 1 - That is, one invoice per booking. A rental request that books rooms over several days is considered one booking. The purpose of the booking fee is to recover the administrative costs associated with setting up the rental. Long term bookings (greater than a month) require a formal contract.
Note 2 - Must have graduated within the last 5 years prior to the booking.
Note 3 - Co-Sponsorship applications for MMaP facilities should be made to the MMaP Director.
