You must submit an online IDR to Tufts Facilities to arrange for Chase Center set-up, furniture rental, and for pre- and post-event custodial services. Even if you use the free standard room set-up, you must still contact Tufts Facilities to ensure that the room is properly cleaned and that the furniture is in place for your event.

Please note that minor furniture adjustments may be made by Tufts Catering to accommodate your event. Only Facilities is authorized to alter the set-up of furniture in this room. Clients are not permitted to move furniture. Moving furniture will result in a bill for Facilities to reset the room.

All property and materials brought in must be removed following the event, and nothing may be affixed to the walls or fixtures. Any damage to the facility or excessive cleaning required following an event will result in additional charges added to the IDR.

Access to the Chase Center must be arranged via Tufts Catering personnel. If you need access prior to a defined event time, please contact the Catering office x73411.
