Outdoor Facility Rentals

Registered Student Organizations (RSOs)

A new process critical to how student orgs spend their funds on campus is the Student Org Purchase Request process. All student orgs desiring to spend their funds on spaces, venues, and products on campus will be required to submit a purchase request. On-campus vendors/departments have been instructed to not provide services to student orgs unless they have received the appropriate Approved Purchase Request. Once you receive a message from the Student Org Finance Center (SOFC) indicating your Purchase Request has been approved, you are required to provide that proof to the corresponding unit in which you wish to hold your program.
