Contract/MOU Sent to Group Coordinator

The Contract/MOU is a legally binding document between the group and the Housing and Dining Services Department. Outlined in the Contract/MOU are estimated fees, the cancellation policy, and other terms and conditions. The Contract/MOU will be sent electronically via email to the email address provided by the group.

Within 30 days of being emailed by UW Housing & Dining Services.

Signed Contract / MOU

The signed agreement can be returned via mail or email; email is preferred.

30 days before the first day of the camp/conference.

Meal Exceptions

Conference groups are expected to eat meals in the Washakie Dining room. The Director of Housing must approve exceptions, and requests must be made no less than 30 days before the first day of the conference.

30 days before the group’s earliest arrival Housing and Dining require review and updates, if applicable, to the estimated meal and room guest counts in the agreement

Estimated Guest Count

A member of our conference staff will call to finalize your estimated number for room accommodations, meals, and arrival and departure information. Details must include any changes to meal plans, estimated singles, doubles, and gender details. After the correspondence, we will email you a summary of the information discussed.

Due ten days before the group's earliest arrival.

Estimated Guest Count

10 days before your first day of activity, Housing and Dining will need a final guarantee for rooms and a roster with occupancy and gender details.  Meal counts, including for commuters, are also due at this time. This final guarantee is the minimum number for the group to be billed.  Please remember that if the actual number is more than 10% over this guaranteed number, your group will be charged 115% of the meal and room cost for these guests.  This is to cover the administrative costs associated with last-minute changes. 

30 days after departure.

Final Bill Sent

We will send a final bill within 30 days of departure.  The bill will be based on the final guaranteed guest count or the actual guest count, whichever is higher.
