All bookings must be accompanied by a $1,000 security deposit, of which $250 will serve as an administrative fee in the event of cancellation once the date has been booked. This portion is non-refundable if the event is cancelled.  In the event of cancellation within 30 days of reserving a date, $750 is still refundable.  Once 30 days have passed the entire $1,000 as well as any rental payments that have been submitted will be forfeited in the event of cancellation. Once the event takes place, the lessee may be eligible to receive the full $1,000 security deposit back, inclusive of the $250 administrative fee. There is an additional $1,000 security deposit required for tent bookings, for a total security deposit of $2,000. In the event that the lessee must use a catering company that is subcontracted by The Cornell Café due to kosher or cultural requirements, the security deposit requirement may be augmented to $1,250. Events running later than midnight will be charged $500 plus tax per hour or part hour past midnight. All fees are subject to change prior to signing of the Facility Use Agreement.  Dates are never confirmed without receipt of the full security deposit and fully executed Facility Use Agreement.
