Alumni Center Cancellation Policies


  • Cancellation – canceling anytime up to 7 business days prior to your event
  • Late Cancellation – canceling 7 business days up to 3 business day before your event.
  • No Show– canceling with less than 3 business days to your event or not showing up for your event.
    • Any cancellation by the renter must be received in writing in the Special Events Office. (Email is fine)
    • Events that are canceled “day of” due to inclement weather will not be charged a late cancellation fee as long as the group representative contacts our offices at least 4 hours prior to their scheduled event start time to notify us of the weather related cancellation.
    • IPFW’s obligation to make the facility available will be relieved if anything outside of its control prevents the facility from being available at the date and time scheduled for the event. This includes such occurrences as natural disaster, fire, destruction, war, governmental order, quarantine and administrative evacuation (i.e. bomb threats) or other forces or events outside of IPFW’s control. If such occurs, IPFW will refund the renter’s deposit and fee already paid in full, but will have no other liability due to such cancellation or unavailability of the use of its facility.
