Plan Your Event


Arranging and Reserving a Date

Even if the date of your event is only tentative, please contact our event coordinators so that we can make a note on our calendar. All other information such as location, number of guests, time of event, and menu selection need to be decided at least ten business days before the event. You may contact our event corridnators at 412-648-2302.

Reserving the Room

Whether the event is to take place on or off campus, the location needs to be reserved before we deliver. If your event will be on campus, tables, chairs, and other equipment will need to be arranged by you by contacting the William Pitt Union Reservation Office at 412-648-7817 or the Facilities Management Office at 412-624-8809. Requests for food and beverage tables should be made at this time. When reserving your time, please allow two hours each for setup and cleanup for events with waitstaff.

Booking Off Campus Events

We will be happy to try and accommodate all events located within a reasonable distance. Deliveries outside of Oakland limits will be subject to a delivery fee that will be determined by the location.

Booking Last Minute Events

We ask for a three business day notice for all events to ensure the availability of services. A late charge of 25% will be assessed for every event booked with less than a 72 hour notice.

Cancellation of an Event

In the event of cancellation, please call our event coordinators as soon as possible.  Any event that is cancelled with less than a 72 hour notice will result in 50% payment due as contracted on the event form.
