Setup and Take Down (not adjustable): this timeframe in your reservation is the system designated buffer for our Event Services team to setup and takedown your event, clean the venue, and reset for the upcoming reservation. Event organizers are not permitted to utilize this time for event needs. If additional time is needed after your event please let your Scheduler or Event Manager know so that Post-Event time can be factored in.
