What’s needed to schedule an external event?


We will create a contract that includes all of the details and costs for your event

Liability insurance

A copy of your insurance in the amount of one million dollars/occurrence is needed; most companies/organizations already have this; individuals often look to their housing insurance to obtain this


This is requested for all rentals and the amount is determined based on the actual space and the length of the rental. The deposit is due at the time the contract is signed.


Checks are the preferred method of payment; ½ of the total cost will be expected at the time the contract is signed and the other ½ one month prior to your event

Parking permits

There is a cost to park on campus 24/7; parking permits can be included in your contract for your participants, or paid for individually at the various parking pay stations on campus (M-F 0-3 hours $3/vehicle; M-F more than 3 hours $6/vehicle; SAT & SUN $3/vehicle/day). If the permit is part of the contract there are in/out privileges for parking; if they are paid for individually this option doesn’t exist.


Any installed equipment is included in the room rental rate; additional equipment or staffing needs can be handled through UW Bothell, through at outside contractor that you employ, or by bringing your own equipment with you. These options must each stand-alone without mixing up the resources. A cost estimate can be provided by UW Bothell.
