Hodgin Hall Alumni Center Rental Policy

Rental Fees

All Alumni Association Chartered Organizations, Groups and Committees may use any room in Hodgin Hall Alumni Center with no rental fees for chapter/committee meetings and events.

The CLIENT is responsible for any charges or equipment rented over and above items supplied by Alumni Center such as (filming, recording, flowers, musicians).


The Alumni Association may require security if the event type or total projected attendance surpasses a certain number of attendees, such that security is necessary to supplement the event staff in monitoring guests and usage of the building. Security could be charged at an hourly rate determined by the Special Events Coordinator.

Booking Your Event

Your request should be submitted at least one month prior to the event. Room space may not be available if requested with less than a two week notice. If two groups request the same space on the same date, priority will be on a first come first served basis.

  • First step in the booking process is to contact the Alumni Relations Office by phone at 505-277-5808, Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. MT, or by email and request the room/rooms. The CLIENT will need to provide event details such as: event contact, date, time, room/rooms requested, type of event, number of attendees and any other needs such as A/V equipment.
  • The Special Events Coordinator will check the calendar, approve the request, and provide the CLIENT the appropriate reservation fee.
  • The Special Events Coordinator will direct the CLIENT to the booking website to submit the approved event details and remit payment. Full payment must be made at that time using credit card, University PCard or PO.
  • Once the CLIENT has paid the appropriate fees, they will be guaranteed the space requested. The event will be considered booked and scheduled on the calendar.


In general, no refunds are given. However, if circumstances warrant, refunds can be issued. If the CLIENT needs to cancel their reservation they may transfer it to another date within the same fiscal year under the same guidelines. Payment received will be applied to the new reservation. Any changes that would result in additional charges will need to be paid through the booking website.

Event Contacts

Each meeting or scheduled event must have a primary contact person on behalf of the CLIENT who will be:

  • Present at the event from beginning to end
  • Responsible for the behavior and demeanor of the guests
  • The spokesperson for the group
  • Responsible for all payments, as well as any damages and/or property loss incurred during the event

It is preferred that the primary contact for the CLIENT arrange for a time to review the space requested and their needs with the Special Events Coordinator at least 2 weeks prior to the event. Please contact the Alumni Relations Office by phone at 505-277-5808, Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. MT, or by email to make these arrangements.
