catering staff will help you customize any menu to your specific needs or budget.

Please contact us at your earliest convenience when anticipating an event requiring the services of

In order to best accommodate your needs, we ask for 10 working days lead time for extensive
receptions, 5 working days lead time for standard receptions and 48 hours lead time for refreshment

After you finalize the arrangements of required services, we will provide you with a contract. This
contract will specify your name or company name, the date and time of the event, menu, costs and a
guest estimate. This contract is a binding agreement between you and the University Club.

The University Club will require a guaranteed number of attendees four days prior to your event.
You are encouraged to adjust this estimate as needed to most accurately approach your final
guarantee of number of attendees. The final guaranteed number of guests is due by 10:00am four
business days prior to your event. If your guaranteed number falls below what was expected during
the event you will still be billed for the guaranteed number of guests.
If the University Club does not receive your guarantee by the specific date and time, your final
estimate becomes your guaranteed number of the event.

The Club will be prepared to serve your guaranteed number plus 2% over your guaranteed number.
This policy applies to any per person priced event. You will be billed for these meals only if served.

A guarantee may be changed/increased after the guarantee deadline only if the University Club can
accommodate this request. In the event of an increase, the guaranteed number, the set-for number
and the prepared-for number will be the same. There will be no average.

While there is no minimum guarantee, an additional charge may be incurred for groups under 25
people. This charge will be determined by the Food Service Director on a menu cost per person

For University Departments and offices, payment can be made by charging to a departmental

For non-university affiliated events, payment must be made in cash or by cheque. The balance is
due the day of the event.

The University Club is a fully licensed facility, allowing service six days of the week.

No alcoholic beverage will be served or sold to any person under the age of 19.

The University Club reserves the right to control all sales and/or service of alcoholic beverages by
