Event Setup Services

Event Setup

Event setup services are provided free of charge to the University community. Resources for event setups consist of tables, chairs, canopies, and stages. Because these resources are limited, events should be booked and scheduled well in advance, typically two to four weeks before the planned event. 

Student-sponsored events require prior approval via the Student Affairs office.


Setup Services

  • Provide chairs and tables for pre-set up and after-event removal by submitting a setup form (see below). 
  • Provide canopies in limited (first come, first served) quantities.
  • Call us at 310.506.7127 or email if you need assistance in designing and configuring your event.

Other event-related services usually require advance notice either by phone or internal documentation and are listed, with contact information below.
