Event Planning FAQ

Can guests park on campus?

Guests are able to park in the parking garage located near the main entrance. The current daily rate for parking is $15.00 per vehicle. Event sponsors are able to purchase parking vouchers as well.

What is the cancellation policy/snow policy?

If the University closes due to weather conditions or for other emergency reasons, all scheduled events will be cancelled. Snow cancellations are routinely announced through local NY television and radio stations, in addition to being posted on Fordham University’s Emergency Weather Hotline at 1-800-280-SNOW.

Do you offer AV support?

The McGinley Center is opened and closed by a well-trained team of student building managers and associates. The staff can provide support for basic AV needs and trouble-shooting (connecting a laptop, adjusting projector focus, obtaining an additional cord and/or minor trouble-shooting).

The staff though will not be assigned to an event to run a presentation, film or serve as an AV technician.

If the event requires a high level of support, please contact the staff during the planning phase of the event. An AV technician can be hired to manage the AV, presentation, taping or other AV needs. There is a charge for AV technicians.

Are there printing / copying services available?

Fordham University does not offer printing/copying services in-house on the day the event. All materials should be printed or copied prior to the start of the event.

Is there wireless internet available?

Wireless internet is available throughout the campus. Please inform the staff though if you do require wireless internet access since it does require a username and password.

Are there hotels in the area?

Normally overnight accommodations are not available on campus. However, there are several area hotels located within a short drive of Fordham University. View a list of hotels in the area.

Can signs/flyers/banners be posted around campus?

Posting, stapling or nailing fliers or materials to walls, surfaces or trees is not permitted. This includes (but not limited to) public/open spaces as well as conference rooms and meeting rooms. These types of activities cause damage to paint and wall surfaces.

Campus Center Operations can provide easels to assist with temporary posting needs.

Departments, student organizations and guests may be held responsible for damages related to inappropriate postings.

Can the event be videotaped?

Limited filming and videography may be permitted in the McGinley Campus Center's non-food service/dining areas and in Collins Auditorium with the express written permission of the Assistant Dean for Student Involvement. To request permission, please email
