In order to maintain the same level of quality for each of our events, we require all clients order flowers for functions through the Office of Hospitality and Food Services. A standard $25 delivery charge will be applied to all orders. Floral arrangements start at $65.00.

If you host a multi-day event or conference with guests entering and leaving law school buildings, we suggest you provide all parties with NYU badges. These can be shown in place of an ID and help facilitate security protocol.
