Food and Drink Policy

At the present time, the policy in the new School of Dentistry is that food or drink is not permitted in any conference, seminar, lecture, auditorium or clinical areas (reception space). This includes coffee, water, etc. These restrictions are designed to maintain the cleanliness of the rooms and to protect the upholstery and carpeting from stains and damage. This will also insure that the rooms are clean for those who follow.

Lunch Time Policy

There will be an exception to the current food and drink policy for events that take place between 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. Lunch and learn seminars, lunch time clerkship and lunch time meetings are eligible for this exemption. Food and drink may be consumed during this time period in accordance with the newly adopted food and drink guidelines in the following conference rooms:

Conference Rooms (capacity)
  • G309 (26)
  • G305 (28)
  • G313 (26)
  • 1310 (14) 
  • 2310 (14)
  • 6105 (20)
  • 6316 (8)
  • 7105 (20)
  • 8105 (24)
  • 9105 (16)
  • 9106 (16)
Special Events Policy

Meetings, seminars or clerkships offered at times other than 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. time period are considered to be special events. Special event requests for food and drink will be approved on a case by case basis.

Clean-up Policy

A $50 cleanup fee ($100 if carpet/upholstery cleaning is required) will be assessed for those who request cleanup service or fail to return the room to its original condition. The cleanup fee may be waived under special circumstances, such as using an approved vendor who provides cleanup service. The department that reserves the room is responsible for insuring that the cleanup is satisfactory. Please report any unsatisfactory room conditions to a conference room scheduler immediately upon your arrival. This will insure that you are not inappropriately charged.

Food Policy in Common Areas

There are several areas where food and drink may be eaten at all times, such as the tile floor areas outside of the conference rooms, in and around the area of the Café and in the atrium lounges on floors 5,6,7, 8 and 9. Everyone is responsible for cleaning up and leaving the outer tile areas in good order.

Lecture, Auditorium or Clinic Spaces

No food or drink may be brought into any lecture, auditorium or any clinical space.
