FAQs

How much does the venue cost to rent?
A member of the facilities staff at the UCF FAIRWINDS Alumni Center will need to ask you a series of questions concerning your event and needs to estimate a cost for the rental. There are also special-rate categories and, depending on which rate category you're in, the staff member can assist in determining your rental cost.

What's the deposit fee?
The deposit is 50 percent of the room rental fee and is due when the contract is signed.

What does the rental fee cover?
The rental fee covers the cost of the use of the facilities, along with round, six-foot or classroom tables, and banquet chairs. All other items (linens, projector and screen, cocktail tables, podium, microphones, easels, etc.) will fall under "Event-Related Expenses." All invoices, once accumulated, will have an 18 percent service fee and tax (if applicable) added to the final bill. The service fee is what covers our student staff to set up, break down and staff your event in the UCF FAIRWINDS Alumni Center.

What's the rental duration?
Rentals are a six-hour block for social events and an eight-hour block for conferences, seminars and meetings. This applies both weekdays and weekends, and these blocks are inclusive of set up and break down. Additional time may be permitted at a charge of $50 per hour (wedding receptions are $150 per hour).

How do I make a reservation?
All requests for reservations need to be made through the UCF FAIRWINDS Alumni Center website. Simply fill out the online reservation form under the Reservations tab. Reservations cannot be made without a completed form.

Can I place a temporary hold on a date without a deposit?
No. If the date is available, we will inform you of its availability, but we cannot offer courtesy holds. Space can only be reserved with a completed reservation form, signed contract and proper deposit.

Can I have an off-campus caterer for my event?
All catering must be coordinated with an approved caterer of the University of Central Florida. The list of approved caterers consists of on- and off-campus vendors. View the current list of approved caterers.

Is alcohol permitted?
Yes, clients may coordinate their own alcohol through an approved caterer — the same as food. We require a licensed vendor to serve the alcohol at your event.

Do you allow candles?
Candles are permitted as long as the flame is enclosed in hurricanes or votives (no open flames are permitted).

Will there be someone at my event to help me in case something goes wrong?
Yes. UCF FAIRWINDS Alumni staff will be present throughout your event (set up and break down) to assist with your needs.
