"Law School" and "University" rates are billed to internal groups within NYU School of Law or the University, respectively, who are primarily responsible for all the planning, on-site management, and expenses related to an event. According to University guidelines, event "sponsorship" exists only when a branch of the University maintains an ongoing sponsorship of an outside organization, not just a specific event of that organization. Affiliation of a member of the faculty or administration with an outside event or organization does not automatically qualify the event for either the Law School or the University rate. Please call the Office of Special Events at (212) 998-6113 if you have questions about whether an event qualifies for the University rate.



Once a booking is confirmed with the Office of Hospitality and Food Services, all other requests for that space on that day are denied. In the event of a cancellation, the organization booking that space will be charged unless the event is canceled more that one month prior to the event. If the cancellation occurs one month to two weeks prior to the event, $100 will be charged. For cancellations within two weeks prior to the scheduled event, the full fee will be assessed.


External Billing Policy

If you are an external group or law firm NYU Law Office of Hospitality and Food Services and CulinArt will require a 50% initial payment of your event prior to the day of your event; final payment is due 30 days after your event.   Event payments can be made by check or credit card.
