Cancellations: The ARC reserves the right to cancel facility or event reservation at any time if such cancellation is deemed by the ARC to be in its best interest or if the group fails to comply with the terms and conditions of their contract.

The ARC may also cancel if, in the judgement of the Special Events Manager or the Director of Club Sports & Special Events, a combination of inclement weather and the group’s event would damage University property.

The ARC reserves the right to assess cancellation fees as appropriate for cancellations within seven (7) business days of the event for activity/meeting rooms and within 30 days for large venue space (i.e., gyms & fields). Failure to cancel or conduct and event will result in full event charges being assessed.

Campus Recreation facility & event reservations are available for Registered Campus Organizations (RCOs), University departments, and Non-UCI groups. Many groups look to the Anteater Recreation Center to rent space and hold their special events for the space availability, variety, and quality of both indoor and outdoor facilities, as well as the professionalism and quality of service taken for their event.
