A Facility Use Permit (FUP) is a short-form license for very limited use of a facility, such as an off-site classroom rental, use of meeting space, or rental of an athletic facility.
Facility Use Permits for use of off-campus property by University departments are reviewed and executed by Real Estate Development & Portfolio, excluding the following contracts which are handled by Supply Chain Management:
1) Travel and entertainment contracts for off-site events which involve the serving of food/beverages/catered items (such as departmental conferences, retreats or picnics); and
2) Travel and entertainment contracts for overnight occupancy at hotels or conference facilities.
Facility Use Permits for use of University property by outside entities are handled by the campus building overseeing the facility. The authority to approve facility rentals to outside groups is delegated to the highest-level administrative official of each campus department and applies ONLY if these guidelines are followed:
This delegation may be re-delegated to an alternate individual, provided that the delegation is given in writing and signed by the highest-level administrative official.

Please note that Real Estate Development & Portfolio continues to coordinate requests by departments to rent non-campus facilities. This service includes reviewing and signing on behalf of the campus all facility use permits issued by non-campus entities and working with the Risk Management Office to obtain appropriate insurance certificates.
